Bike to Work Day in the US 36 Corridor

There’s still time to volunteer, register and support this great community event

June 6, 2016

Louisville, Colo. – Last year’s Bike to Work Day boasted more than 32,800 cyclists in the Denver metro region. With an average commute of 9.2 miles, these cyclists rode an estimated 603,612 miles and prevented 274,613 pounds of CO2 from being emitted into the air!

This year’s Bike to Work Day will be held on Wednesday, June 22 and over 10,000 cyclists have registered so far. For those who have not yet registered, there is still plenty of time to register and find the route that works best for you. This year’s festivities will include breakfast stations (from 6:30 to 9 a.m.), water stations (from 3:30 to 6 p.m.) and parties throughout the afternoon. For a full list of breakfast stations, group rides and bike route maps visit biketoworkday.us.

Commuting Solutions will host two breakfast stations along the US 36 corridor (one at Paul’s Coffee & Tea in Louisville and another at Interlocken East Park in Broomfield). The latter was the second largest station in the Denver metro region in 2015, seeing over 300 cyclists pass through. Commuting Solutions represents more than 190,000 employees along the corridor and is coordinating Bike to Work Day for the US 36 corridor in partnership with the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG).

For those who want to help on Bike to Work Day but cannot commit to hosting a station, there are opportunities for sponsorship and volunteering. Businesses and organizations that are interested in hosting a Bike to Work Day breakfast station or sponsorship can contact Commuting Solutions at info@commutingsolutions.org. Individuals who are interested in volunteering can contact the Bike to Work Day station nearest to their home or office.
