Local City Council Members Celebrate "Bike to Work" Week

'Bike to Work' week is here. And the cities of Reno and Sparks are teaming up with the Washoe Health District to encourage us all to ride at least one way, one day this week.

"People wonder if they have to commit to riding both way," says Erin Dixon with the Health Department. "No you don't." she adds. "We just want everyone to give a try. Meet up with friends and ride together or ride to work and get a ride back home. We just think the more people try it the more some will do it and riding just one day a week will safe you on gas ...hopefully lower your stress and boost your exercise level. Plus it gets cars off the roads and that improves the quality of the community overall."

Reno and Sparks city council members took to the streets and rode from Sparks City Hall to Reno Monday morning after explaining how both cities have become more bike-friendly with more bike lanes in both cities.

National Bike to Work Day is Friday the 21st. And a lot of businesses are offering free coffee for bikers who show their helmets that day. 

The Reno Bike Project is offering free pancakes to cyclers who stop in. They hoping it will become a healthy habit and a growing trend along the Truckee.
