Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon and South Salt Lake Mayor Cherie Wood will ride their bikes to their offices from a city park Tuesday morning.

Police will escort the mayors and other riders who want to join the ride, which begins at 7:30 a.m. in Liberty Park.
