Colorado Springs has turned their event into a bike month, with Bike to Work Day on June 10th. This includes a free breakfast, and a corporate challenge.

See also the Colorado Springs bike month page, however they do not list any specific dates.

From their website, they offer several bike to work incentives:

Why should you consider bicycle commuting?

There are many reasons to commute by bicycle. For starters, bicycle commuting exercises your commuting options and your body! It can also save money, reduce stress, improve air quality and it is often faster than driving (depending on your commute, of course).

Save Money

Automobile ownership adds up fast - think of your fuel costs, insurance, auto maintenance, parking fees and car payments! If you replace your car or secondary vehicle with a bicycle, you can save up to 25% of your income.

Improve Air Quality

Did you know that short auto trips are up to three times more polluting than long trips? Each time you substitute a four-mile round-trip auto commute with a bike, you can prevent nearly 15 pounds of auto air pollution from contaminating your air. Bicycle commuting also reduces the water and noise pollution that are associated with driving a vehicle.

Stay Healthy

Bicycle commuting offers an abundance of health benefits. Studies have proven that bicycle commuting can reduce stress and the risk of heart disease, maintain or reduce weight, tone muscles, and even improve cardio-vascular fitness.

Cycling works for some, walking for others, or perhaps a combination. For added convenience, Mountain Metropolitan Transit buses offer bike racks on all routes.

Call Metro Rides at (719) 385-7431 to get started! We even offer a free bike partner match to connect you with others near you that are interested in cycling to work. What are you waiting for? Get in gear today!
