Bike to Work Day

Bike to Work Day 2018 will be held on Wednesday, June 27. This annual event encourages everyone to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality by using a bike for transportation! As a special treat for those who commute on a bike, there will be stations handing out free food and prizes all across the Denver metro area during the morning and afternoon rush hours. Refuel with snacks and water, chat with other riders, and learn about what’s going on with biking in Arvada.

2018 times and station locations

Arvada hosts breakfast from 6:30 – 9 a.m. at the following stations: 

  • A New Spin Bike Recyclery, 6410 Wadsworth Bypass

  • Memorial Park, behind City Hall

  • Gold Strike Park, at the confluence of the Ralston Creek Trail and Clear Creek Trail, will also be open from 4 - 6 p.m. to refresh riders on their way home. We are excited to have a couple of sponsors who will be helping out at the Gold Strike Station.

    • Odyssey Beerwerks will be at both the morning and evening sessions at Gold Strike. They'll have coupons and swag and will also be acting as the rain location.

    • The Bicycle Shack will be providing minor on-the-spot repairs and tune-ups at Gold Strike during the morning session.

​Bike to Work Day is just one way that we’re working to make Arvada a better place to ride.

About Arvada's Bike System

The City of Arvada boasts 125 miles of off-street bikeways and 56 miles of on-street bike lanes. Arvada's bicycle infrastructure and the City's ability to manage it properly has resulted in a Bike Friendly Community designation by the League of American Bicyclists. The most recent award is at the Silver Level (to match communities like Denver, Longmont, Aspen and Vail) because the City participates in programs like Bike To Work Day.

Bike Friendly Arvada leads fun, free, family-friendly community bike rides spring, summer, and fall. Visit the Bike Friendly Arvada website.
