On Friday, many drivers will be switching out four wheels for two on their way to work, taking part in the national Bike to Work Day.
More than 170 businesses have registered to take part in the event, and city officials are expecting at least 400 people commuting to work on a bicycle.
There will be several replenishment stations throughout the city ready to feed hungry riders on their way to work.
Steve Noble, vice president of DOWL HKM said, “The nice thing about them is it increases the visibility of the bike to work stations. You don't just see the people riding down to work. You see the stations and that kind of draws your attention to it and says, oh this is being supportive in the community and so it's nice to see it popping up all over town with the businesses supporting them and getting more and more people riding to work, not just on Bike to Work Day, but everyday.”
