Most people drive a car to work but city organizations, like the Corpus Christi Parks and Recreation Department, along with the CC-RTA and Marina Arts District as well as the Mayor's Fitness Council are encouraging commuters to ride their bikes.
Executive Director, Terry Sweeney with the Downtown Management District says, the goal is to demonstrate that riding to work regularly is realistic and practical. So, it's time to grease up the old bike chain and get ready to roll into work on two wheels instead of four.
"It's to promote what a bike-friendly environment we have in Corpus Christi and to get people to think about an active healthy life-style, as well as using multi-mobile transportation to get around," Sweeney said.
May 19th is National Bike to Work Day. To celebrate, cyclists everywhere can spin into the sparkling city, together.
"There's going to be two organized bike rides, so if you don't want to ride alone, you can meet at 7:30 at the HEB at Weber and Holly and then also at 8 o'clock at Lamar Park."
The rides wrap up at the Corpus Christi RTA building on Staples Street where breakfast will be served.
"We'll have coffee and donuts, juice and kind of a short program to celebrate the community and National Bike to work day."
The idea is to continue creating an environment that is safe and inviting for anyone who chooses pedaling as their primary transportation.
