The river is officially below major flood stage, it's supposed to get above 80 degrees this week...it's a good start! So why not take advantage of the nice turn of events outside?

According to KWQC, today begins bike to work week for the Quad Cities. The initiative is sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and encourages QC residents to not only get more active, but reduce their carbon footprint as well.

Of course, if you live over the river from where you work, biking to work is significantly harder. But, public transportation has prepared for that potential. As an added bonus, per KWQC's report:

Throughout the week, fixed-route Metro, Bettendorf, and CitiBus routes will honor your bike as your fare. All QC fixed-route buses are equipped with bike racks that accommodate two or three bicycles.

If biking to work is a little much for you, I'd suggest just going for a small bike ride around the neighborhood! We're going to have some really nice evenings this week.
