A local nurse is trying to inspire her community to peddle their way to a healthier lifestyle.
Theresa Bowick is the brain child behind the Conkey Cruisers. It’s a program using bicycling as a way to get city residents up and moving.
Bowick says the idea came after two incidents. First, someone thought she was running from the police. Second, she was accused of being an undercover officer, while running in the Conkey Avenue neighborhood.
Bowick says the comments were made because she was told nobody exercises in that neighborhood.
