SUMMIT COUNTY — The Summit County community is invited to participate in Bike to Work Day this Wednesday, June 23. Bike to Work/Wherever Day (BTWD) is an annual countywide event that supports physical activity for all levels and abilities of cyclists in our community. Since 2014 Bike to Work Day has encouraged commuters in Summit to bike to work, helping them save money on their commutes, improve their health and lower stress levels — all while reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality.

Need some inspiration to get you on your bike and pedaling to wherever? Want to understand more on how biking can make a difference to your health of mind and body, the environment and the world at large? Then join us in celebrating this year’s Bike to Work/Wherever!

Every June, Colorado celebrates Bike Month and here in Summit, we love anything that highlights and promotes people who ride bicycles. In 2021, we're back on track with Bike to Work (or Wherever) Day, planned for Wednesday, June 23, 2021. 

During BTWD, community members are encouraged to travel by bike wherever they're headed, be it work, errands, to drop kids to daycare, or just for fun. Participants who ditch the car in favor of a bicycle can find free breakfast and activities located all around Summit County. Some participants try to hit as many stations as possible. Others are happy to find a scenic spot to comingle with a few other folks. The point is to get on your bike wherever you are headed and enjoy the benefits of moving your body, breathing in the fresh mountain air and reducing your stress level, while supporting the health of the planet. 

All cyclists are welcome to stop by any (or all) of the six aid stations between 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. for a light breakfast, bike tune-up, bike bingo and coloring contest.
