Why choose a smart commute in Denver? From lowering stress levels to improving our traffic congestion, see the benefits you could reap with smart commuting.

Join the April monthly challenge!

Help Way to Go kick off the Summer Bike Challenge this April. Try biking and not driving this summer to improve air quality, ease traffic, save money – and get ready for Bike to Work Day on June 26! All month long, track non-solo driving trips on MyWaytoGo.org like carpool, vanpool, transit, biking or walking (anything but driving alone in your car) for the chance to win a Cotopaxi messenger bag in honor of Earth Day! Cotopaxi’s Gear for Good promise centers on sustainability, and the organization dedicates a percent of their revenue to nonprofits supporting communities experiencing poverty.

Sign up for the Bike to Work Day Business Challenge

Business leaders can earn recognition each time an employee pledges to ride in honor of Bike to Work Day on June 26, 2024. Join the Business Challenge and climb a public-facing leaderboard as your staff pledges to swap trips alone in their cars for rides on two wheels. To sign up, fill out the form and promote the program internally when rider registration opens on Monday, April 15. The more employees who sign up, the higher the business will rank on the Bike to Work Day Business Challenge leaderboard. At the end of the challenge, the top companies representing each size category will be recognized on social media and in a paid ad on the Denver Business Journal website. Reach out to btwd@drcog.org with questions.
