Ride to the Rockies (baseball games, that is)
The ballpark’s downtown location and the subsequent foot and bicycle traffic it helped bring to the area have been a major economic driver for the LoDo area. Since Coors Field was built right downtown, rather than on the outskirts of the city, it’s convenient for many to bike and walk to the games.
With free bicycle parking, four B-cycle stations within a few blocks and—for fans outside of Denver—light rail and bus service that will get you at least as close as Union Station (which has another B-cycle station), getting to Coors Field by bicycle has never been easier.
Why not skip the traffic and parking hassles and ride to the stadium? The Rockies provide a free gated and attended bike parking area. You should still bring your own lock, but it’s free and easier than parking.
This season, the Rockies have a Games of Green program that includes Bike to the Game days for Sunday home games. The program encourages fans to ride their bikes to the game and check in at the Coors Field bike lot near Gate E by the 4th inning for the chance to win prizes.
More information can be found on the Rockies website and a Denver B-cycle station map can be found here. (Tip: If you’re planning to ride a B-cycle, you can get $2 off a 24-hour pass on Bike to the Game Sundays with promo code 643.)
1. Avoid road rage: In case there’s a loss, riding your bike home will lift your mood!
2. You’ll be sitting in the stadium for three hours. Get some exercise riding to and from the game instead of sitting in the car on the way there and back!
3. Parking your bike is cheaper and easier than parking your car!
