Register and Prep for Bike to Work Day, June 28

Businesses can join the Bike to Work Business Challenge.

Joyride for better air! Put some fun in your commute when you sign up for Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, June 28. Join Commuting Solutions’ partner, the Denver Regional Council of Governments’ (DRCOG) Way to Go program, and thousands of your fellow Denver-area residents for Bike to Work Day this summer. 

Each year, the DRCOG’s Way to Go program organizes the Bike to Work Day event with help from member governments and organizational partners in the Denver metro region. Bike to Work Day represents a grassroots effort by people in the region who care about educating residents and businesses on the benefits of using two wheels to get to work.

Register to swap your car for a bicycle and help improve air quality by not putting out vehicular ozone emissions. Individuals are automatically entered into a drawing to win prizes, including a Tern e-bike when they register.
