Local organizations will have stations set up along the City’s busiest bike routes offering breakfast, snacks, goodies and bike repairs.

“Bike to Work (or Wherever) Day is one of Fort Collins’ favorite unofficial holidays,” City of Fort Collins Active Modes Specialist AnnMarie Kirkpatrick said. “We’re excited to see everyone celebrate this well-loved event again this year.”

Breakfast stations will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. across Fort Collins. Some organizations will also offer afternoon or evening events for the commute home. A map of breakfast stations will be posted at prior to the event.
