Bike to Work Day on June 27th was the focus of the event, but people could also learn about bike sharing, and multi-modal commuting. RTD was there to demonstrate how to put a bike on a bus.
There were maps of Aurora’s parks, trails, and open spaces. As well as, bike checklists and simple maintenance information. The message being that biking is an easy option in Aurora.
“It’s a lot easier than you think. And it’s helping to reduce carbon emissions, it’s helping to reduce traffic, and who wants to be stuck in a traffic jam during morning rush hour,” Paradies said.
