Bike to Work (or Wherever) Day 2021#
Every June, Colorado celebrates Bike Month and here in Fort Collins, we love anything that highlights and promotes people who ride bicycles. In 2021, we're back on track with Bike to Work (or Wherever) Day, planned for Wednesday, June 23, 2021.
What is Bike to Work (or Wherever) Day? Some have described it as "Fort Collins' best holiday". Others love the celebration of people who ride bicycles. Some hosts want to contribute to our Platinum-designated bicycle culture and community. During BT(W)D, community members are encouraged to travel by bike wherever they're headed, be it work, errands, to drop kids to daycare, or just for fun. Participants who ditch the car in favor of a bicycle can find free breakfast located all around Fort Collins. Some participants try to hit as many stations as possible. Other are happy to fine a scenic spot to comingle with a few other folks. The point is to get on your bike wherever you're headed that morning!
