SPOKANE, Wash.--Commuters trade their vehicles for bicycles this week in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene. Bike to Work Week began Monday.
Cyclists told KREM 2 News that riding bicycles gives them a different perspective.
“You get to see things, you get to smell the fresh air in the morning and you get to see sights you totally would miss in a car,” said Joseph Carter.
They also received free food. Volunteers served free breakfast to cyclists Monday morning in Downtown Spokane. Volunteers in Coeur d’Alene served free coffee and doughnuts.
Events are planned each day for Bike to Work Week.
