"The celebration of bike month is to recognize why you ride bikes. Whether biking to school, to work to promote health, or preserve environment, to explore new areas to which you can't get to by car," says Scott Gordon, of River City Cycles, Inc.
Some of the activities the city of
Bike to School Day took place on Wednesday, and not only can you participate in all the events, you can also get simple bike repairs and advice on how to ride safely.
"Cyclists need to follow rules of the road. Same rules apply to motorists. Also motorists need to understand there are laws in effect that do protect us especially where we don't have a designated shoulder," says Gordon.
Cyclists acknowledge that it is everyone's responsibility to be safe on the road.
"Bicyclists have to watch out for other bikers. Not just cars and people. Bikers have to watch out for bikers," says Richard Stitely, a local driver.
