This week is National Bike to Work Week.

The League of American Bicyclists uses this week to promote the benefits of biking like exercise and being kind to the environment.

Peter Kohlmoos bikes to work at Shepherd and Schaller in downtown Wausau every day in part because he saves a lot of money.

"Way less money, in fact I don't have to budget for gas. Buy gas about once a month,” says Peter.

Kohlmoos says he doesn't just save money. He also saves time by not having to deal with traffic or parking.
