Mountain Metro Rides organizes Bike to Work Day activities each June to encourage bicycling for personal and community health, alternative transportation, recreation and sustainability. 2015 marks the 22nd annual Mountain Metro Rides Bike to Work Day, and will be celebrated in June. Check back for more information, including a a date, and plan to join us for this fun community event!
Bike to Work Day Mission Statement
Inspiring the Pikes Peak region’s cycling community by encouraging the use of bicycles as transportation, promoting safe riding habits and decreasing the barriers that the general public perceives to becoming a cyclist.
Mountain Metro Rides Bike To Work Day Breakfast
Join hundreds of individual cyclists, city and military leaders and dignitaries, and the many cyclists who compete in the annual Corporate Challenge, as we gather together throughout the state of Colorado to promote cycling as an alternate mode of transportation, for both recreation and health.
Corporate Challenge & One-on-one Team Challenges
This year, over 40 companies had riders participate in Corporate and Team Challenges. The City of Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs Utilities, El Paso County, Colorado Springs Fire Department, Colorado Springs Police Department, and all branches of our local military community participated in one-on-one team challenges.
To make cycling events come to fruition and remain free to the public, community support is vital. Many volunteers are needed each year to plan events, staff the annual Mountain Metro Rides Bike to Work Day, and staff the FREE Bicycle Valets that are provided at large community events. Without volunteers it would be impossible to execute these events.
If you are committed to encourage cycling for personal and community health, alternative transportation, recreation, and sustainability, we encourage you to become a volunteer.
