Bike to Work Day

Colorado Department of Transportation’s Bike to Work Day is scheduled for Wednesday, June 22. Set a reminder to get some exercise by starting the workday early and riding your bike to work.

If your job is too far away, consider loading a bike on your car and park some distance from work, then jump on and ride. It is free and it is fun; it is good for the environment and for the body. As President John F. Kennedy once said, “Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.”

  • A few reminders:
  • Check tire pressure
  • Wear a bike helmet
  • Wear full-coverage shoes
  • Wear reflective clothing
  • Be polite
  • Find a safe bike route
  • Do not ride against traffic
  • Ride safely on the right side of the lane (do not hug edge of the curb)
  • Ride in a straight line, no weaving in and out of traffic
