Bicycles are still preferred mode of transportation for some

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Rising gas prices this summer forced many eastern Iowans to switch gears and ride their bike to work.

But falling fuel prices now and the bitter winter has not stopped many bike riders.

"I think people have in the summer found out that commuting is a really good way to get back and forth and they've really tried to extend the season for themselves," said bike shop owner Geoff Perrill.

Perrill said they've seen the biggest sales increase in studded bike tires and cold weather clothing.
