Wednesday is Bike to Work Day in Denver. At ReadyTalk, it seems like every day is Bike to Work Day. On warm on days, the bike rack in the ReadyTalk lobby is full and there are usually several more laying around the office. Plus, there are two ‘office’ bikes for employees to use to run errands or enjoy a lunchtime ride.
As someone that rides to work a few times a week, there are several things that I love about commuting via bike:
- This obvious benefit of riding to work is the exercise but it also really wakes me up and gets me ready for the day.
- No traffic! It’s so nice to be able to cruise to work and not worry about the stop-and-go traffic.
- With gas prices rising, it is nice to reduce the number of times in the month that I have to fill my car up. Plus, there’s the money I’m saving in wear-and-tear.
Do you ride to work? Does your company participate in Bike to Work Day? If so, we would love your tips on commuting via bike and what it is you like about it.

When she isn't tackling branding, messaging, social media and collateral, she enjoys skiing with her husband, running with her dog and playing board games with friends.
