Boulder Walk & Bike Month 2015

Boulder is a maze of bike paths that connect about every corner of the city. They can lead you along the creek, into the mountains, through neighborhoods, and to just about any business. Needless to say, it’s a very bike friendly city. Boulder Walk and Bike Month, is a celebration of Boulder’s unique bike culture. Started in 1977, on it’s 38th year, it’s the largest of its kind in the nation.

There are over 75 free events for adults and children of all ages: bike rides, mountain biking courses, breakfast stations, historical bike rides, hikes, running races, scavenger hunts, and much, much more!

Community Cycles, a local nonprofit that educates and advocates for safer bike use, is the coordinator of all events. You can volunteer by contacting them through the link provided, which is right here: http://www.walkandbikemonth.org/volunteer/
