Bike to Work Day is a free national event that celebrates taking alternative transportation to work. National Bike to Work Day is in May, but Colorado holds its celebration in June because of the weather.

Way to Go, a division of DRCOG, sponsors the Colorado celebration. There are more than 300 way stations set up throughout the Denver  metro area, offering everything from breakfast treats to giveaway gear and bicycle maintenance.

“It’s geared towards getting people on bikes, getting them excited. It’s really a celebration of getting on your bike to commute to and from work,” said Way to Go spokeswoman Allison Redmon.
