Biking to Work on June 22?
Don’t just bike TO work – bike HOME via the many Niwot/Longmont Bike Parties!
About 13 years ago, eager to encourage those who ride bike to work on Bike to Work Day to ride HOME as well, I contacted a few of the local breweries in Longmont asking for their support on this very special day. They all (two, at that time) were very encouraging, offering a FREE PINT of beer to those who ride to their establishments that afternoon with a helmet.

I recently started working downtown, which involves a 30 mile one-way commute, usually by bus or light rail.

Blue Sky Bridge is having a ride your bike and raise money month. It started June 1 but these things are kind of like flossing and eating right; it’s never too late to start.
