Are you ready for Bike to Work Day?

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![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

Thanks, @AndiMann. Nothing that we're aware of in @bouldercolorado or @bouldercounty, but that doesn't mean there c…

Thanks for sharing, @StreetsblogDen. We're excited to bring greater attention to the issues we see in bike lanes.

  • Always good to see our logo out on the trail!
  • Our communications manager (yours truly) leaves his @warbyparker #warbyhometryon out on his desk during a meeting and look what happens… #pranksters #lookingood #bicyclecolorado
  • Glad to see the bicycle repair station at Wash Park getting put to good use (even if we never like to see a fellow bicyclist in need)! Thanks for putting these up, @denverparksrec—you helped him get home safe!
