Free Breakfast, Prize Drawings & After-Work Festivities

Summit County and the Physical Activity and Nutrition Team of the Summit (PANTS) invite the community to participate in the 2018 Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, June 27, 2018. Bicycle commuters can receive free breakfast, get simple bike tune-ups by local bike mechanics and enter prize drawings.

Summit County has celebrated Bike to Work Day since 2010, and hundreds of commuters participate each year. PANTS began partnering with the County in 2014, helping to grow the event’s participation and activity offerings.

Making Your Bike Commute Safe & Fun

  • Pack your bag of work clothes and other items you’ll need the night before. This minimizes prep time and logistical details on the morning of your commute.
  • Ensure your bicycle is safe to ride (air in the tires, brakes working, chain lubed, etc.).
  • Contact the Summit County Open Space & Trails Department ahead of time if you need assistance planning a bicycle route to your workplace.
  • Check the weather forecast the night before so you can make the right clothing and gear choices; early morning bike rides at high elevations may require a warm outer layer and gloves. Be prepared for afternoon showers on the way home.
  • Don’t forget your helmet!

After-Work Festivities

  • The community is invited to continue the celebration of Bike to Work Day at three locations in the evening.
  • The Town of Silverthorne is hosting Bikes & Beer at the Angry James Brewery from 5:00 – 7:00pm.
