Hosts and Sponsors Needed for Bike to Work Day
MAY 17, 2012 - Longmont needs your business to host or sponsor a breakfast station on Bike to Work Day, June 27.
This is an opportunity to promote your business, show your support for pedal power, and reward all the bike riders who participate in this annual event that supports and promotes bicycling as a commute choice. The hope is that once someone tries bicycling, it might turn into a daily routine.
Historically, the City of Longmont has hosted the largest breakfast station in the common area between the library and Civic Center between 3rd and 4th on Kimbark St. Every year riders stop for a pancake breakfast, juice, coffee and other goodies provided by sponsoring businesses.
Breakfast stations offer free beverages and snacks to those who ride their bike to work between 6:30 and 9 am. After work, bicycle commuters are invited to participate in Bike to After Work when local watering holes offer discounts for bicycle commuters.
The goal is to offer five to ten breakfast stations throughout the city. We are seeking businesses to host and/or to partner with existing venues. Anyone interested in participating can register directly at www3.drcog.org or contact the City of Longmont at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-651-8304.
