Loveland celebrates bike month in June!
Why use a bicycle to get around? Save money on gas, get healthier, burn calories, reduce stress, preserve air quality and reduce traffic congestion.
Bike to Work!
Bike-to-Work Day shows residents other ways of getting to work besides driving a car. While it’s common for some to ride their bikes everywhere, others have not tried an alternate method of transportation. If you’ve been thinking about dusting off that bike in the garage, now is the time! If you don’t have a bike but want to participate, try walking to work.
NEW THIS YEAR: Each Bike to Work Day station will have a cow bell to ring in celebration of people on bikes!
Here are some interesting facts about Loveland's 2019 Bike to Work Day:
- 18 station locations
- 25 total stations. This includes 7 locations that will have hosts both AM and PM
- 31 different organizations/businesses/City departments are hosting!
- 12 hosts are brand new this year!

What is the purpose of this event?
The Bike to Work Challenge is a grassroots effort to encourage more folks to ride their bikes to work. It is intended to promote a fun, healthy, and environment friendly means of getting to and from work.
During the course of the competition, we’ll provide a couple of surveys collecting information on your commute. These surveys will gather information for our community leaders to use when prioritizing and allocating transportation infrastructure funding.
Who can participate?
Colorado school/work-site teams are encouraged to participate.
Are there any fees?
No, participation is free.
Do I need a Google account to participate?
No, the only requirement is the completion of a brief (<5 min) registration form and survey.
How does the Challenge work?
After registering, you will be given access to your team’s ride log. Participants use this to log their commute distance and the days that they ride (or walk) to work.
Each of the ride logs are linked to a master log (only accessible by the BTW Challenge Team). The master log is used to summarize results and update the status charts. A score (normalized by your site size), is calculated from each participant’s ride numbers and the teams are ranked and displayed online.
Will there be any awards?
The City of Loveland sponsors the traveling trophy that the top-scoring team keeps until the following year. For other awards, each organization is encouraged to do something special for their own participants. A simple breakfast, possibly in conjunction with an internal awards ceremony, may be something to consider.
