By STARS AND STRIPES Published: May 16, 2014
As part of National Bike Month, community leaders at U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden organized Bike to Work day on Friday.
The events, which included guided tours to Clay Kaserne from all three housing areas — Hainerberg, Crestview and Aukamm — promoted biking as an option for commuters. Biking guides were available to offer route information and tips for new bicycle commuters to encourage biking as a healthy and safe alternative to driving.
The 15th Engineer Battalion, based in Grafenwoehr, will be installing seven covered bike racks throughout the Wiesbaden military community. In addition to the bike racks, which are scheduled to be completed by May 30, the command has set aside dedicated locker space at the Clay Kaserne Fitness Center for biking commuters .
Sgt. Paul Hernandez, a construction team leader with the 902nd Engineer Company (Vertical), out of Grafenwoehr, Germany, makes sure a structural beam is level during the construction Friday of one of the seven covered bike racks being built throughout the Wiesbaden community. The structures, which are set to be completed by the end of the month, are part of the command?s overall support of biking as an option for commuters.
