Bike to Work Week celebrated in South Bend


It's Bike to Work Week, and the Michiana bike coalition celebrated with free, organic blueberry pancakes. LaSalle Grill and First Source Bank sponsored the annual event.

Around 300 people attended, and organizers say almost 100 teams have signed up to bike throughout the week

Organizers have high hopes that this week will encourage the green initiative throughout the season.

"Biking to work is cleaner, it's greener,” says South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. “To be a bicycle-friendly community like South Bend is really helping our economic development.”

South Bend has some 60-miles of interconnected bike ways throughout the area.
