Happy Scenes From Denver’s Bike to Work Day
About 34,000 people in the Denver metro area were expected to pedal to the office today for Colorado’s Bike to Work Day. If you were out and about, you probably noticed more people biking in the city’s streets, bike lanes, and trails than usual.
Denver had 92 pop-up stations serving breakfast and coffee to riders this morning. Some stations are gearing up for happy hour this afternoon.
Bike to Work Day is fun, plain and simple. It’s also an opportunity for people who don’t normally commute by bike to try it and maybe even make it a habit — they could have this much fun every day.
Here are some scenes of all the bike traffic today. We’ll follow up tomorrow with a look at how Bike to Work Day exposed where Denver’s bicycle network comes up short.
