Mexicans take to two wheels

The city government is trying to reduce pollution by encouraging cycling.



    With more than three million cars and gridlocked traffic, Mexico City may not seem like the most bicycle-friendly place.

    But thanks to the city's mayor, a two wheeled revolution is under way.

    It is part of a larger campaign to ease traffic and clean up the city's notoriously polluted air.
