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.
- Colorado Springs
- Denver metro area
- Estes Park
- Fort Collins
- Glenwood Springs
- Grand Junction
- Roaring Fork Valley
- Summit County
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!
