"The bikes will reduce the restaurant's carbon footprint by getting workers out of cars; enhance workers' health and fitness; and free up parking spaces for tourist-oriented Ashland.

'The employees went crazy over it, a real buzz in the air,' Alex Amarotico said. 'They will come to work more energized. It's great for morale. I think it will catch on (with other businesses). I hope so.'"
