Light Up the Night

This year we have partnered with Colorado State University and the Bicycle Ambassador Program to host more light giveaway stations.

Check out our website for more information at www.fcgov.com/bikewinter.
Bike to Work Day Breakfast Stations
Wednesday, December 11 from 7:00am to 9:30am
Join us for the 7th annual Winter Bike to Work Day (WBTWD). It's just like the summer event but cooler! Free breakfast stations will be set up around town rewarding people for choosing to bicycle to work. If bicycling in the winter sounds daunting, Winter Bike to Work Day is a great day to test the waters as you'll find hot coffee and warm breakfasts at every turn. Join your friends and neighbors and take on the Winter Bike to Work Day challenge!
We encourage all patrons to pre-register for the event here, http://www.fcgov.com/bicycling/btwd/. While we still need participants to sign in at each station they visit, pre-registering will help speed up the process the day of the event.
