Bike to Work Day


June 22 2010, 11:36 AM
Wednesday is Denver’s Bike to Work Day, and there’s more to look forward to than just pedaling to the office. Events have been planned throughout the day---from free breakfasts to lunchtime yoga and after-work drinks---for those of us making the switch to two wheels. Morning commute: Ready to join the throngs of bicycling commuters? First, register online. Next, check out the map to find directions, breakfast stations, and group rides. Midday: Wednesday is also the kick off for the "Revitalize Lunch Hour" series, a 45-minute yoga class paired with a healthy lunch. Yoga starts at noon at the Benedict Fountain Park (Tremont Place and 22nd Street) and is followed by lunch at The Queen Anne Bed & Breakfast (2147 Tremont Place). There is a required $20 donation, a portion of which will benefit the Denver B-cycle program. (Mid-July, prices will rise to $30 for the session.) After-work commute: Celebrate with the Second Annual Bike from Work Bash at Cactus, on the corner of 15th and Little Raven streets, from 5 to 8 p.m. It’s a big---and free---party, featuring Breckenridge Brewery beer, Infinite Monkey Theorem wine, and Illegal Pete's burritos. You can also check out a bike-polo demonstration and get a tune-up.
