Bike to Work Day Is June 22

Dust off that bike, pump up the tires, enjoy a beautiful Colorado day, and save gas money by participating in Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, June 22!

The City of Arvada is hosting two Bike to Work breakfast stations as part of the metro-wide effort to get commuters out of their cars and onto their bikes.  One will be at Memorial Park, located at W. 59th Avenue and Ammons Street (directly north of Arvada City Hall), easily accessible from the Ralston Creek Trail.  The second station will be at Gold Strike Park (800 W. 59th Avenue) at the junction of the Ralston and Clear Creek trails.

The breakfast stations will offer a variety of food and drink to reward your biking efforts.  Special guests from Bike Arvada (www.bikearvada.org), the Regional Air Quality Council (www.EveryTripCounts.org) and the Citizen Transportation Committee will be present to offer tools and tips for cyclists.

Do your part to cut traffic congestion and pollution!  Remember that carpooling or walking are also great options for Bike to Work Day.
