Albany-- May is National Bike month, and people around the city are gearing up to ride their bike to work this week, as the National Ride Your Bike to Work Week comes to a close this Friday.

Albany Bike club President Jim Anne Brett talked about her club's role in riding their bike on a weekly basis, "I love to ride every Saturday and Sunday with our club, it's great exercise."

Their club meets weekly on Thursday and is open to anyone interested. Applications are available at Cycleworld.

Nuts on Wheels and The Pecan City Pedalers are sponsoring the 2nd Annual Nut Roll which is a fund raising ride to benefit the Parks at Chehaw Education Center.

Sheila Urick is the ride director for the "Nut Roll" and hopes that people will come out and ride their bikes for a good time, and support a good event. For more information you can visit www.pecancitypedalers.org .
