On Wednesday, June 25, thousands of people will leave their cars at home and take two wheels to work.
The League of American Bicyclists has been sponsoring National Bike Month and Bike to Work Day since 1956. Throughout most of the country, these events take place in May, but a few years ago, the state legislature officially declared June as Colorado Bike Month, with the fourth Wednesday of the month being Bike to Work Day.
There will be breakfast stations setup all over the Boulder and Denver metro areas serving up delicious morning treats, so even if you have to leave your house extra early to get to work on time you’ll still be able to squeeze in a good breakfast to start your day. If you live in Colorado, get that bike out on Wednesday and take part in a great event. If you don’t live in Colorado, help us celebrate anyways by biking, walking or taking public transportation to work on Wednesday!
