Boulder 2016 Bike To Work Day

Beloved Boulder Turnpike Bike Lane

Drive along Hwy 36 these days and you’ll see Boulder 2016 Bike enthusiasts using the new concrete riding trail.  It looks like a fabulous ride, with the big climb over the ridge.  I tell myself it is one I want to make, but for the moment I’m trying to conquer a stationary bike at the gym.  Meanwhile, for cycling enthusiasts of all levels, quickly approaching is the Boulder 2016 Bike To Work Day event.  This year it takes place on June 22nd.  When you register, you can purchase a commemorative T-Shirt and learn about all the great aid stations and complimentary breakfasts along your planned route.

There are 220 stations this year.  See official page for a location on your commute.  Register, win prizes, have fun, reduce your carbon footprint for the day!
