Bike to Work Day
Bike to Work Day is an annual event that 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.
In 2017, Arvada hosted breakfast from 6:30 – 9 a.m. at the following stations:
Gold Strike Park, at the confluence of the Ralston Creek Trail and Clear Creek Trail
Memorial Park, behind City Hall
Olde Town Square
A New Spin Bike Recyclery, 6410 Wadsworth Bypass
Refuel with snacks and water, chat with other riders, and learn about what’s going on with biking in Arvada. The Gold Strike station will also be open from 4 – 6 p.m. to refresh riders with water on their way home!
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.
