Coloradans Ditch the Car Keys: Bike to Work Day Today

June 24, 2009

Denver, CO - Wednesday is "Bike to Work Day" in Colorado, with events scheduled across the state. One person who's leaving his car keys at home is Denver City Councilman-at-Large Doug Linkhart. His typical day is filled with driving across town from meeting to meeting. Today, he says, he'll try to keep that schedule - with two fewer wheels.

"It may be good for my health, as I've got quite a few appointments around the city, but they're not that far away!"

Cycling safety is another important part of Bike to Work Day. Denver and the entire state have made great strides in becoming more bike-friendly, notes Linkhart, but there's still more work to do.

"Particularly getting people downtown - the river systems are great, but we need more access. We also need to encourage drivers to give bikes more right-of-way."

In addition to the health benefits, he adds, there are plenty of 'big picture' reasons for biking to work.

"We've got air pollution issues and dependence on oil, so it's absolutely critical that everybody who can bike to work, do so."

Several free breakfast stations will be set up around Denver, Boulder and other areas for two-wheeled commuters to "fuel up." Get more information online at
