Some Fort Worth commuters cut back on their carbon footprint, one pedal at a time on Friday.

On National Bike to Work Day a pack of people in Fort Worth decided to leave their car in park for the day and bike to work instead.

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.
