    The group met up at the Tarrant County College campus in downtown Fort Worth then rode to The T's Intermodal Transportation Center.

    "I’m now going to put my bicycle on a bicycle rack on a bus and take it on to work," Dick Ruddell, President of The T said.

    Several city leaders, like Ruddell, and other community members took part in the ride. The group said bicycling is not a bad way to get around.

    "I like it because it gives you a little bit of exercise and it saves a lot of emissions and we all know we need to have our carbon footprint a lot less," rider Dan George said.

    This is the third year the city of Fort Worth has participated in National Bike to Work Day.
