LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

Monday marks the start of another week-long promotion related to health awareness.  Bike to work week is a time for commuters to stay active while on their way to work.

It's a simple concept, instead of driving a car, ride a bike. Other than being a healthier alternative, commuters also say its a good way to simply start your day. "I enjoy the challenge," said Charlie Lipke, who bikes to work, "it makes me feel really good, and everyday when you get to work you can feel that you've accomplished something even before you start work."
