Bicyclists who ride BART will be able to take their wheels on board trains all day on Fridays, beginning in August.

The agency is lifting a ban on bikes during commute hours on some Friday trains as part of a pilot program. BART wants to see how well the trains can carry bicycles during the busiest hours of the day. Riders are being asked for comments on the program.

Existing bike restrictions in effect Monday through Thursday haven't changed.
