(KSL News) Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon didn't have to fill up his tank before heading to work this morning. He just had to eat breakfast.
The Mayor rode his bike to work along with several other employees to celebrate Salt Lake County's "ride your bike to work day."
Corroon says the ride is meant to draw attention to ways to battle high gas prices and protect the environment.
Corroon says, "We decided it was time to send a message to people that it's time to look at alternative transportation whether it's bicycles or buses or light rail or commuting with other people."
Corroon said that while he just rode from Liberty Park, some employees rode in from as far away as Draper and Taylorsville.
