June is Bike Month in Colorado
Though it will look a lot different this year there is still a lot to celebrate.
People are pulling their bikes down and getting out riding for the first time in a long time. And our businesses are getting to business as restrictions are being lifted. This year, in light of the struggles the pandemic has caused, let’s practice safe social distancing on our bikes to help our business community stay strong.
Over the last several Bike to Work Days, our business community has come out in force to support people on bikes. Now it’s our chance to return the favor with Bike To Biz Week.
Bike to Biz Week is organized by the City of Colorado Springs and sponsored in part by KOAA 5, Magic 98.9 FM and Colorado Springs Indy. A special thanks to our organizing sponsors Bike Colorado Springs, Support The Springs and Council of Neighbors and Organizations

as has been so well said by one our favorite businesses and supporters of bicycling in the community
Support your favorite restaurants taprooms because they are re-starting completely upside down financially and already have small profit margins before this started. Opening now does not mean places “have made it” as we still have a very long way to go to get to “normal”.
