Bike to Work Day is June 22
DU will host a breakfast station on campus
Tens of thousands Coloradans are preparing to ditch their cars in favor of a bike. Wednesday, June 22, is Bike to Work Day in Colorado. Last year, more than 30,000 people participated in Bike to Work Day across the state. In Denver alone, more than 16,000 people have registered to participate this year.
Along the Front Range, more than 200 stations will provide breakfast (6:30–9 a.m.) and water in the afternoon (3:30–6 p.m.). Once again, the University of Denver will provide a breakfast station on the Carnegie Green. You will be able to get coffee, bagels, donut holes and other treats.

If the breakfast and water stations are not enough for you, Chipotle has a way for you to fuel up. The Colorado-based chain is offering buy-one/get-one burritos, bowls, salads or tacos. All you have to do is stop in with your bike helmet or bring in the promotional flyer.
DU continues to do its part to be a bicycle-friendly university. The bike-share program just completed its second year on campus. For $25 a quarter (plus a $150 refundable deposit), students can rent a bike, helmet and U-lock. DU’s Center for Sustainability also does hundreds of bike tune-ups and repairs for students each year.
Nationally, Bike to Work Day is in May. Because of the weather in Colorado, the state legislature moved ours to June.
