WICHITA, Kansas — A Wichita group is encouraging you to change your commute to work and take your bike instead of a car.
The Health and Wellness Coalition handed out free bike helmets at breakfast Friday morning at several locations around town.
They also hosted a lunch in Old Town Square to promote cycling.
“It’s fun, it’s healthy, it saves them a lot of money especially with $4 gasoline,” said Barry Carroll, Founder of Bike Walk Wichita.
Biking advocates say riding to work makes employees more alert and productive on the job, and they tend to take fewer sick days.
