Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 28, 2010
The day after the Bolder Boulder is completed on Memorial Day, Boulder will launch its most ambitious Walk & Bike Month ever, with more than 90 events and activities scheduled during June. Each year, Boulder and other Colorado communities celebrate Walk & Bike Month in June. In Boulder, the city goes full tilt in celebrating its world-class bicyclist and pedestrian culture. As a result, Boulder's Walk & Bike Month is among the largest in the nation, and more than 8,000 participants are expected this year for Bike to Work Day alone. Walk & Bike Month grew from a single day of bicycling activities in 1977 and is now in its 34th year.
The 90 events and activities in Boulder this year are geared for kids, seniors, families and women, athletes and non-athletes alike. In addition, there will be many weekly group bicycle rides for all ages and skill levels, kids' bike rodeos, and walks and runs at various Boulder locations. For a complete list of events, go to http://www.communitycycles.org.
Sue Prant, director of Walk & Bike Month, said she expects record participation all month, and especially on Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, June 23. "As always, we expect thousands of workers, students and residents to take part by getting out of their cars and walking or biking to work. I think we'll see a new record for participation in Boulder. We have 45 organizations setting up free breakfast for riders and walkers. It will be awesome."
