Biking tips

Try participating in Bike to Work Day: New to bike commuting? Bike to Work Day is always the fourth Wednesday in June in Colorado. It’s a great and supportive way to try bike commuting for the first time.

Bike-n-Ride: If your commute is too far to bike the whole way, bring your bike on any train or bus to complete your trip.

Keep it secure: Bring a lock and secure your bike to a bike rack.

Know the rules: Know the road rules for bicycles in your area before you go. In Colorado, bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists.
