Pedal your commute on Bike to Work Day

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Today is National Bike to Work day. Commuters around the Tri-State will take their ride to work and be offered a free breakfast on the Purple People Bridge. The day will end with a celebration at Washington Park.

Metro and TANK fares are free today for bike riders who need a lift. Riders are encouraged to try out the bike racks on the front of the bus.

If it's too late for you to bike today, remember these bicyclists' laws for the next time you're pedaling to work.

Cyclists must obey traffic laws and ride in the same direction as traffic on the right side of the road. Cincinnati city bike laws state only those 15 years or younger may ride on the sidewalk and all cyclists must yield to pedestrians.

The "3-foot-law" states that motor vehicles must allow three feet when passing a bicycle.
