URBANA -- Quite a few people woke up extra early Thursday morning to stand in a very long line. They were waiting to get one of 100 free bikes.

The Urbana Police Department planned to start giving them away at 10 am, but people started showing up as early as 5 am. Even though they had to wait awhile, people who got a bike say it was worth it.

If you didn't get one, the department plans to do it again in another six months or so. The bikes were all collected in Urbana. Officers check to make sure they're not missing or stolen before they're given away.
