June is Colorado Bike Month

Throughout June, multiple agencies are supporting Colorado Bike Month as a way to increase the recreational activity for the purposes of fun and health.

Part of this initiative is Bike to Work Day on June 25, as promoted by Colorado Department of Transportation's Bicycle & Pedestrian Programs and Federal Highway Administration.

The exercise from regular, moderate cycling can help people avoid significant health issues, and other health benefits can be found from the lessened effect on the environment.
