GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- With the Twin Cities named one of most bike friendly cities in the country, more cyclists than ever are hitting the road.

The focus of this week's Pedaling with Pat is keeping safe while looking cool.

Kate Sandberg from Penn Cycle joined KARE 11 News @ 4 to preview some cool bikes and accessories to help us get rolling.

2012 Electra Verse
This new street bike is high on style and value. The bike features a super comfortable saddle with a lightweight aluminum frame that keeps you in a upright position. It comes in several fun colors and in a men's and women's step though style. The 700c multipurpose tires are good for the trail or gravel roads. It's available in 21 or 24 speed options.

Trek Gary Fisher DS 8.3
Can't decide if you want a street or mountain bike? Try a dual sport. This bike handles both streets and paths, suburbs and woods. This go-anywhere machine is road-bike fast, trail-bike capable and fun everywhere. It sports a lightweight Gold Series aluminum frame and a 63mm-travel suspension fork so it floats over rough roads and trails. With multi-surface Bontrager tires wrapped around big, 700c wheels, any route you want to take is yours. Hills are no worries with 24 Shimano speeds and safe, grippy brakes at your disposal.
