For employees of Badger Alloys, Bike to Work Week came to a close Friday with a give away of about 80 bikes.
The local foundry's wellness program is one of the initiatives putting more emphasis on a bike culture in Wisconsin.

“Businesses are increasingly seeing bicycling as a great choice for their work force not only for transportation but health too,” Hardman said. “We see an increasing number of businesses working to make their workplaces more bicycle friendly."
