BROOKLYN - Bike to Work participants received some free treats on their way to work this morning.

In honor of Bike to Work Day, several booths were scattered throughout the city offering up free refreshments like coffee, coconut water and granola bars.

The whole setup was put together by Transportation Alternatives, who say that riding a bike to work is not only great for your health but also for the environment. Today's festivities were a thank you to all those who took part in the national holiday by riding their bikes to work.

Participant Mical Anselmo said "in addition to the natural health benefits of actually riding your bike to work, it’s fantastic - we usually have to fight for a range of pavement it's nice to have a little bit of consideration."
