SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- "Bike-To-Work Week" continued today as dozens of people took in an early morning ride, plus a little breakfast.

Today, cyclists made a stop outside Lasalle Grill for a blueberry pancake breakfast.

They also served sausage, coffee, juice and more.

Memorial Hospital was there educating riders about safety.

That means always wearing a helmet and having lights on your bike.

As we mentioned, several people were there including teachers from Kennedy Primary Academy, students from several schools like Holy Cross and more.

Many say these events are a great way to bring awareness to cycling in general.

“Also, we want people to be aware of other cyclists on the road like when you are driving your car and that’s what this event does,” said Ali Oesch, a participant. “A lot of people don’t know that it is illegal to ride your bike on the sidewalk unless they are 10 years or younger, so just trying to bring awareness to bikers and our community.”

The week of biking to work continues tomorrow.

Tomorrow cyclists and others can enjoy a bike related movie at the state theatre at 6 p.m.
