Trail Mix

To celebrate bicycling for transportation, fun and health, Colorado has designated each June as Bike Month. At the same time, Colorado joins a nationwide effort to encourage cycling novices and enthusiasts to experience the fun and freedom of safely riding a bike to work, school, errands and recreation.

While there will be many events around the state throughout the month, the highlight of the month is today’s Bike to Work Day when employees leave their cars at home and enjoy bicycling to work.
