A day full of sunshine Wednesday, meant many workers from across the Erie area could participate in the National Bike to Work week.
The week is used to help promote a healthier style of living for those who have to spend the day at work. Some of those who are participating this week say its a great way to clear their mind before and after the work day. However, there are a some other factors that help encourage people to participate.
“To be quite honest its quicker for me than driving because I don’t live very far from here and by the time I get on my bike and zip through traffic it will take me to work quicker than going up a ramp driving up three levels park my car and walk over,” said Eric Dahlsterand, Senior Human Resource Support Specialist at Erie Insurance.
