More tourists are choosing to take in the sights and sounds of the Iowa Great Lakes by bike.

They can stay on paved recreational trails, take to the streets and highways or cycle gravel roads.

Taylor Huseman, owner of Okoboji Expedition Co., 1021 US-71, said sightseeing is more enjoyable on a bike than in a car. The full-service bike shop is opening a new bike rental office in the Queens Court retail corridor in Arnolds Park.

"We do a lot of bike rentals out of our shop," he said. "People have said, 'We've been up here for years and we've always wanted to rent a bike.' They actually see more of the area."

Seventy-five percent of cyclists participate in recreational cycling.
