Bike to Work Day is a statewide effort to provide a fun, encouraging, and enticing day for both experienced and novice bicyclist to try commuting to work by bike. In the Denver region, one-third of Bike to Work Day participants are first-time bike commuters. Bike to Work Day is an opportunity for these first-time bike commuters to try biking to work as part of a large, positive and supportive event. Biking to work has an impact on regional air quality, health, and traffic congestion.
To make the day even more fun, make sure to stop by the City of Brighton and Treads Bicycle Outfitters bike stations.
