Bicycling is the ticket for a stress-free, car-free commute on Colorado Bike to Work Day, June 27.

Commuting and recreational cyclists can stop by any of six breakfast stations: four in Glenwood Springs, one in Carbondale and one in Rifle.

All six stations will be open from 7-9 a.m. Wednesday, June 27.

Station hosts will serve free breakfast snacks and coffee, and offer giveaways, a prize drawing and “I Biked Today” stickers.

Colorado Bike to Work Day is a statewide celebration. Events are happening in communities across Colorado to promote bicycling as a healthy way of getting around that is also good for our environment.
