We're talking bikes and whether you have your own or not, Evansville's Downtown YMCA has you covered. These boxes with an Upgrade sign, aren't for show, as Crystal Paroyan shows us, they contain a magic exercise machine. "Riding is just wonderful for your health and then exercising and getting out and being active outside, and obviously if you push that bike and ride hard, you're gonna burn lots of calories," Paroyan tells us. Not that there is anything wrong with lifting weights or walking, but if you're able, bike-riding through your town is a great form of exercise. Paroyan says, "The Greenway makes a wonderful place to ride, you can just come into the YMCA, show some ID, fill out a short form and they they'll give you keys to a bike and then you and your family can go and have an enjoyable ride on the riverfront." "We do have kids bikes we do have alot of parents bring their kids, we get you a helmet we have locks for the bikes and away you go." "You can go as far as you want..as long as you want...as long as you can make it, you can go," says Paroyan. It's whatever fits your time and interest, now we're pumped and ready to go... all in an effort to upgrade to a better you.
