City completes improvements in time for Boulder’s fifth annual Winter Bike to Work Day
While biking around Boulder on Wednesday, Jan. 23, Boulder’s fifth annual Winter Bike to Work Day, riders are encouraged to use some of the recently completed bicycle facilities, such as the:
The CU Environmental Center will be hosting a breakfast station to showcase the results of the Broadway (Euclid to 18th) Transportation Improvements Project at the University Memorial Center (UMC) at 1669 Euclid Ave. A federal Safe Routes to School grant funded construction of the 10-foot wide multi-use path along Fourmile Canyon Creek between 26th and 28th streets, adjacent to Elks Park. The 28th Street multi-use path has been extended along the west side of 28th Street from Colorado Avenue to Baseline Road, completing the south section of the 28th Street Improvements Project. Multimodal improvements for the middle and north sections of the corridor are currently underway.
These new bicycle amenities are part of the City of Boulder’s ongoing work to maintain and improve the community’s multimodal transportation system. Strategic investments allow the city to continue developing connections that enhance mobility within the existing transportation network. The city has leveraged significant funding from local, regional and national partners to complete these transportation improvements, maximizing the impact of each dollar spent by Boulder taxpayers.
Boulder’s Winter Bike to Work Day is for commuters who are interested in trying winter cycling as well as for those who already commute by bike year-round. Those who ride a bike all or part of the way to work, school, or another destination will be offered a complimentary breakfast at participating locations from 7 to 9 a.m. To register and view a list of the free breakfast locations, visit www.goboulder.net.
Riders who register ahead of time will be entered into a prize drawing. In 2012, more than 1,200 cyclists registered to participate in Winter Bike to Work Day. The goal for 2013 is 1,400 registered participants.
