Are you ready for Bike to Work Day?

BikeToWorkDay small

Happy Bike to Work Day week! Colorado’s Bike to Work Day is this Wednesday, June 24. Though most of the country celebrates Bike to Work Day in May, Colorado’s annual bike commute festivities happen in June, when the snow has melted enough for our mountain towns to join the fun. Check out the following (partial) list of Bike to Work Day events taking place around Colorado! If I missed an event in your area, please let me know in the comments.

 

If your ride to work takes you through the Denver area, come see us at the breakfast stations at Civic Center Park, REI and the Wash Park Whole Foods!

Strength in numbers

Why is Bike to Work Day so great? It’s an opportunity to demonstrate the strength, diversity and momentum of our state’s bike community. When you ride to work on Wednesday, you’re joining tens of thousands of other cyclists who know that riding a bike is a fun, healthy and efficient mode of transportation.

Bike to Work, Bike to Play, Bike to Shop, Bike to…

Inspired by Estes Park’s Bike to Work, Bike to Play campaign, I’m also using this week to appreciate all the other ways my bike plays a role in my life. My personal favorite is Bike to Shop, known recently in social media as #quaxing. What’s your favorite way to use your bike?

Wherever you live and ride in Colorado, I hope you get the chance to make your Wednesday commute on two wheels. See you out there!

  • Our education director, Mo,  just returned from an inspiring trip to Vancouver for the @railvolution conference! Check out the great infrastructure for bicyclists, pedestrians and transit riders that make it easy and safe to get around outside of a car and show drivers that streets are for people! #bicyclecolorado
  • Thanks for hosting Bicycle Colorado last night, #cruisinpueblo and @steelcitycycling. It was great to meet and hear from some members of @activepueblo and go for an informative and FUN group ride through the streets and trails of beautiful Pueblo! #bicyclecolorado
  • @cobrascycling is a social riding club making a big impact in Colorado. They made generous gifts last night to #bicyclecolorado, @BikeJeffco, @BRAColorado, and @craighospital at their annual party!
