Pedal your commute on Bike to Work Day

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.

More information on bicycling in the Tri-State from Queen City Bike.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
