Bike to Work Day 2009

Yay, ALD is once again participating in Bike to Work Day!

The Arapahoe Library District will participate in Bike to Work Day on June 24, 2009. Bike to Work day represents a grassroots effort by cities, counties, transportation planners, community organizations and others across the state to educate commuters about the benefits of using two wheels to get to work.
Bike to Work Day supports and encourages fun and camaraderie among staff while showing the Library District’s support, along with other government and interest groups, for the State declared day. It is also a fun and healthy event that supports our green efforts. The Library District participated in the event last year (click here for blog posting), with more than 40 staff members taking part.

All Library District employees are encouraged to participate. The event not only includes biking, but also other means of commuting such as walking, carpooling or riding the bus.

There are no entry fees. The Library District will support the event by purchasing ALD customized T-shirts for each participant. Although employees must register by June 2, 2009 in order to assure an order placement for T-shirts, participants can register anytime up to the day of the event. Registration is made online at http://www.drcog.org/btwd2009/index.cfm.

Please note these important dates below:
June 2, 2009 - Register to participate in Bike to Work
June 3, 2009 – T-shirt orders will be placed
June 20, 2009 – T-shirt orders received
June 24, 2009 – Bike / Walk / Carpool / Ride the Bus to Work
