This week is Bike Walk Week in the Twin Cities, and to help encourage people to bike and walk for their commute, Pit Stops have been set up in several locations in the Twin Cities. Volunteers from the community and from local bike shops are there Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7 to 9 am and 4 to 6 pm to help people with biking and walking tips, some lights and other giveaways, and bike repairs. We visited four stations on Monday morning and talked with volunteers about why they bike and walk.
