Start planning for Columbus 'Bike to Work Day' coming in May

The Lower Chattahoochee Regional Development Center and Georgia Department of Transportation are teaming up to celebrate this year's "Bike to Work Day" says the Columbus Planning Department.

This year's event will be May 15 and is being supported by Columbus State University, TSYS, Aflac and others.

By switching from car riding to bike riding, people can save the environment and money.

Visit the active valley Web site www.activevalley.org to determine if you will need a park and ride location and to start selecting your route to work.
