    Bike To Work Day, 6/23, Denver. Craig Hospital sponsor :)

    Hi all! Tomorrow, Wednesday, 6/23, starting @ 6am Craig Hospital, along with 40 other partners and vendors will be @ Civic Center Park along with hundreds of cyclists celebrating Bike To Work Day ~ A safety, awareness and fun/fit event held annually throughout the Denver metro area! We will be giving out helmets and other cool cycling gear to any and all participants ('til supplies last) who ride their bike downtown. Come one, come all and enjoy a beautiful summer morning ride! Hope to see you there..

    Onward and upward,

    Chris

    Great time, great event. We did an NBC piece this am @ 5:30 then opened our tables to hand out 600 helmets for free! Probably 3,000 people showed up throughout the morning and there were vendors galore handing out food (Panera Bread), Drinks (Vitamin Water), bagels, muffins, fruits, etc. Overall a great morning wrapped up by about 8:45. Whew. What is it they say on those Army commercials: "We do more before 6am than most people do throughout their entire day". Today, the Denver cycling community from antique high-wheelers, to my friend's bamboo (eco-friendly) mountain bike proved it. We had an amazing time, huge mix of rides, fun people, and maximum effort. Good job Denver, see you next year..

    Good stuff!

    I especially like that Craig gave away 600 bike helmets. Each one is an opportunity to prevent a head injury.
