Hello North Denver Metro – 

You are receiving this email from me because your worksite is located in the north Denver metro, and there are a few pertinent things you should be aware of since you, your workforce and your business rely on our transportation network. I have your contact information because of outreach efforts to your office, or thanks to your participation in a regional commuter program like Bike to Work Day or Guaranteed Ride Home.

My intent is simply to keep you informed about transportation information and programs in the north metro. This is a quarterly email alert.

Please share the following information with your employees so everyone will have a chance to participate in Colorado’s first International Winter Bike to Work Day.

WHAT:   Winter Bike to Work Day – morning and afternoon stations geared to encourage riders.

WHEN:   Friday, February 9, 2018International Winter Bike to Work Day.

WHY:     Despite the great weather in Colorado, commuting by bike is challenging in winter. Last year focused on building awareness of general bike commuting, demonstrating that winter cycling is doable, and congratulating those who do cycle year-round. 

WHO:     Riders can register at www.WinterBikeToWorkDay.org and pledge their bicycle miles for the day. Station Organizers can register their event on the site, then email Smart Commute to let us know. We want to promote your efforts!

HOW:     We hope you and your communications team will spread the word via your office intranet, your calendar of events, social media and other connections. Our partners at DRCOG have created great graphics (link below) and we have background information and social media content that we are happy to share.
