National Bike to Work Week gets rolling

Posted:
SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (KTIV) - You may see a lot more bicycles on the road next week for National Bike to Work Week.

May 12th to the 16th is National Bike to Work Week.

This is aimed at promoting health and fitness along with reducing vehicle pollution and traffic.

Employers can register bicyclists who will be entered to win a free bike.

Participants can also download a "passport" that includes special offers throughout the week.

"It is just a chance to see what we have to offer.  I think we are really blessed in this area with the trail system that we have and the ability to ride bikes to work there. It's a great opportunity and I think that we should take advantage of it," said Alex Watters, bike to work advocate.

Also, two new bike racks in the shape of children were added along Sioux City's riverfront near the Anderson Dance Pavilion.
