Your Guide to Colorado Bike Month 2018

Though most of the country celebrates Bike to Work Month in May, we do things a bit differently here–we celebrate Colorado Bike Month in June, when the snow has melted enough for our mountain towns to join the fun.

Check out the following list of Colorado Bike Month events taking place around the state! If we missed an event in your area, please add it in the comments.

off!

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 Bike to Work Day, you’re
joining
tens of thousands of other bicyclists statewide who know that riding a bike is a fun, healthy, green 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, we encourage using your experience
this
month to appreciate all the other ways your bike plays a role in your life. What’s your new favorite place
to
ride?

Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
