Now in its 43rd year, Boulder’s Walk & Bike Month, presented by GO Boulder, is one of the oldest and largest events of its kind in the nation. What began as a one-day event in 1977 has grown to a month-long celebration. Last year, more than 5,000 people registered for Bike to Work Day alone, and organizers expect an even larger turnout this year for Walk and Bike Month’s main event, which will be held on Wednesday, June 26. Boulder usually has over 60 breakfast stations run by local businesses on Bike to Work Day from 6:30 – 9 am.
Walk & Bike Month 2019 includes a diverse list of events and activities for kids, seniors and families.
