June is Bike Month!
Every June, Colorado celebrates Bike Month and here in Fort Collins, we love anything that highlights and promotes people who ride bicycles
Each year on the fourth Wednesday of June, FC Bikes hosts its signature Bike Month event: Bike to Work Day (BTWD). Fort Collins' Bike to Work Day is a biannual event to encourage people to bicycle for transportation, experience the benefits of riding a bike, highlight Fort Collins' extensive bike routes, and demonstrate that bicycling is an easy, fun and healthy means of traveling around the city.
Bike Month Proclamation
Join us on Tuesday, June 2 at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate all things bike in Fort Collins for the official proclamation of June as Bike Month. At City Hall, the Mayor will officially declare June 2015 as Bike Month.
