Riders traded in khakis for Spandex and helmets
Cyclists may have caused you a headache this morning on your way to work, but it was with good reason! Today, thousands of Coloradans woke up early to celebrate Bike to Work Day 2010. Last year, 20,000 Coloradans participated in the annual event organized by the Denver Regional Council of Government. The campaign encourages commuters to cut down on greenhouse emissions and in 2009 the event saved approximately 294,000 vehicle miles.
Metromix.com and 9News set our alarm clocks early as we took to the bike paths to reward all of the amazing bikers pedaling their sweet rides. Cyclists were given metromix.com swag with an abundance of granola bars from our friends at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club, along with free socks from Primal, and all the bicycle information you need to know from Wheat Ridge Cyclery and Denver B-cycle.
Kudos to this year’s Bike to Work participants!
