Fellow Denverites: Tomorrow (June 27, 2012) is Bike to Work Day!

This is the one day (among others) that you should feel compelled to pull your bike out of the garage, pump up the tires, grease the chain, and pedal your way to work!

There will be several breakfast and bike home stations located throughout the city (See Full Map Here), one of which will be here on the University of Denver’s Driscoll Lawn.  Breakfast Stations will be open 6:30-9am, Bike Home Stations will be open 4:30-6pm.

You can learn more about Bike to Work Day from our wonderful local advocacy

organizations: Bicycle Colorado, DRCOG, and (our favorite) Transportation Solutions.

You should also support Bike Denver at the annual Bike From Work Bash, which is held at  15th & Little Raven on June 27th, 5-9pm.  There will be Free Beer, Free Music, and all-around good fun with Denver’s best cyclists and bicycle advocates.  So hop on your old two-wheeler and enjoy bike to work day! (Then rinse, and repeat!)
