Tallahassee, Fl. 5-8-13
May is bike month in the city of Tallahassee.
Mayor John Marks will make the proclamation official at tonight's city commission meeting.
Tallahassee recently opened up a bicycle box off of stadium drive near the FSU campus. The area helps protect cyclists from motor vehicles on the road.
"Whether it's for recreation or whether it's for work or whatever individuals want to do, we want to really support our cycling community as much as we possibly can," said Tallahassee mayor John Marks.
Riding a bike is also the green way to go. Motorized vehicles account for 70% of carbon monoxide released into the air.
