With hundreds of miles of roads that traverse neighborhoods and rural area, Polk County is a mecca for bicycle enthusiasts. Children ride on streets near their homes while more experienced riders can be seen pedaling great distances.

There is sometimes the momentary inconvenience of a motor vehicle driver stuck behind the bicyclists until reaching a safe place to pass.
