MASON CITY, IA – You may have noticed more bicycles on the road this week, and while gas prices are on the rise, it’s not just because of that.
It’s Bike to Work Day, but all week people were encouraged to ride to work.
It’s all part of a plan to help promote better wellness at the workplace.
And for some biking enthusiasts, it’s just another reason to ride.
“Great way to promote wellness in your business and it’s just for yourself well-being, riding to work gives you great energy in the morning. Just makes you feel good about your whole day,” said Ryan Burt of Mason City.
“I don’t have to pay for gas to get here, I don’t have to worry about a parking spot,” said Sarah Van Osten of Mason City.
And on Monday, there will be a kick-off event for the “Activate Mason City Plan” to encourage the city to be friendlier when it comes to walking and biking.
That will be held at the Mason City Public Library at five.
