Group Gears Up For Bike To Work Week

Posted: May 11, 2013 at 5 a.m.

Laura Kelly, center, a longtime bicycling advocate, speaks Friday with Kristin Klemm during an announcement to declare May 12-18 as Bike To Work Week on the Fayetteville square before riders left for a crosstown ride along the city's trail system. Residents are encouraged by the city and Bicycle Coalition of the Ozarks to ride their bicycles to work during the coming week and residents of Benton and Washington counties can track their mileage to be eligible for prizes in the annual Commuter Challenge.

City employees and the Bicycle Coalition of the Ozarks are challenging people to make their daily commute on two wheels next week.
