In 2018, Colorado Springs’ 25th Annual Bike to Work Day broke the record for most participants and breakfast stations, with 1,355 registered riders visiting 28 breakfast stations around town!
This year, 586 riders from 45 companies and organizations ranging from 2 to 5,000 employees participated in the Corporate Challenge. The Corporate Challenge provided an opportunity for companies to demonstrate their commitment to wellness and quality of life for their employees.
Colorado’s Bike to Work Day, which takes place the fourth Wednesday of June, encourages bicycling for personal and community health, alternative transportation, recreation and sustainability. In Colorado Springs, breakfast stations sponsored by local companies and organizations are located along the bicycle network and designed to support how people actually ride their bikes to work while highlighting local support for bicycling in the community.
See you next year on July 24, 2019!
