Biking to work in Colorado is a tradition. The City of Boulder first celebrated Bike to Work Day more than 25 years ago. Colorado Department of Transportation then began promoting it statewide, and, in 1995, the Denver Regional Council of Governments began helping the area's cities and counties link their individual events together. Bike to Work Day is celebrated in Longmont as well as many other communities along the Front Range and in the mountains.
Register for the Bike To Work by clicking on the following link:
- It's a great way to fit exercise into your day;
- Fewer cars on the road means less congestion on roads and pollution in the air;
- Cycling energizes you to start your day and de-stresses you afterwards so you arrive at work and home feeling refreshed;
- You save a lot of money on gas and maintenance for your car; and
- It's fun...you might surprise yourself by loving it.
