Here’s How to Take Part in Colorado’s Bike to Work Day

Colorado’s Bike to Work Day is tomorrow, and while it may or may not inspire long-term behavioral change for commuters, the sea of bikes on the road — last year the region saw about 30,000 — probably makes it the safest day of the year to pedal to the office. The Denver area sees about 18,000 bike commuters on an average day, according to the Denver Regional Council of Governments.

The event could take 25,000 motorists off the road, according to DRCOG, which orchestrates the bike stations, rallies, and data collection each year.

June 24 is also the last Bike to Work Wednesday, a weekly event BikeDenver organized to promote bike commuting as a regular behavior rather than a special occasion.

Here are some ways to participate tomorrow:

About 5 percent of last year’s commuters were riding to work for the first time on the holiday, according to a survey by DRCOG. All participants rode to work more often after Bike to Work Day than they did prior to the holiday, the survey stated.
