[Brainerd Dispatch, August 02, 2013] A new bicycling group in Crosby is hitting the roads every week.

It started off as a few doctors getting together because of a common interest in bicycling.

Today, it’s grown to a group of hospital staff — doctors, nurses, pharmacists, maintenance — as well as their family and other community members.

“It makes it more enjoyable to share (exercise) with people,” said one of the bikers, Dr. Peter Stokman of the Minneapolis Heart Institute, part of Allina Health.
