The Town of Estes Park and the Estes Park Cycling Coalition are organizing Estes Park’s third annual Bike to Work Day to take place Wednesday, June 24. Cyclists will be offered a free breakfast, coffee, giveaways, informational booths, bike check-ups, and live entertainment from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m. at the Estes Park Visitor Center, 500 Big Thompson Avenue. Estes Park joins communities across the state to encourage residents to try bicycle commuting as a healthy and safe alternative to driving, and activities will take place rain or shine. “Bicycling is a healthy, environmentally friendly option for commuting to work – and it makes parking easy!” commented Estes Park Town Administrator Frank Lancaster.
