BRAWLEY — When safety is accounted for residents proved they will navigate destinations by handle bars rather than steering wheel as Bike to Work Day invigorated a greener commute Thursday.

Brawley is on the forefront with the most bicycle lanes, 24 miles planned and 13 miles striped, noted Brian McNeece, president of Imperial Valley Velo Club. As part of the Nationwide Bike to Work celebration (second one here) the Velo Club had seven stations, two in El Centro and one each in Imperial Holtville, Westmorland and Calexico.
