it's national bike to work day!
Paul Steely White, of Transportation Alternatives, says now is the time to pull out your bike and join the city's estimated 130,000 daily riders.
WHITE: The first thing is to make sure your bicycle is in proper working order. Make sure your brakes are working, that would be the most important.
REPORTER: To mark the day, Transportation Alternatives is distributing coffee and pastries on the East River Bridges, the Hudson River Greenway and in Central Park.
