Ditch your car this week, and hop on a bike! The Wisconsin Department of Transportation wants commuters to grab a bike and take it to work.
Even if it is unseasonably cold, the weather will turn warm quickly. Travis Eiden, bike shop mechanic at Builer’s Cycle and Fitness, rides despite the chill in the air.
He told us, “I bike to work because its convenient, efficient, and it keeps me healthy.”
Not to mention you can keep more money in your pocket, instead of spending it at the gas pump.
The DOT encourages riders who are interested to pair up if you want to feel safer on the road.
Commuters can register through the departments’ Rideshare program by entering their place of origin, destination, and work times online, and contact others by email.
