But there are ways to get around the price at the pump if you are willing to sacrifice your ride.

Robert Bryant is a couple hours away from working off the 10 hours of volunteer work needed to get a bicycle. Bryant is taking advantage of the Earn a Bike Program offered by the non-profit organization Revolve Community Bike Shop, where he is fixing bikes to earn one of his own.

"Just recently I got my bike stolen from inside my apartment complex," said Bryant.

"If you have 10 dollars any bicycle is yours, if not you can earn one by taking a safety course or volunteer for 10 hours," said Elizabeth Bejan of the Revolve Community Bike Shop

Since Revolve opened up in August about 50 people have earned a bike. Starting this spring, they will be hosting bike donation drop-offs throughout the metro.
