Family rolls along with the crowd on Bike to Work Day

Annual event encourages Coloradans to use pedal power

Posted

The Wiseman family usually takes dinner bicycle rides together through town. This time they took a breakfast ride.

June 26 was known as Bike to Work Day for the rest of commuters throughout the state, but young brothers Andrew and Tucker Wiseman didn't have a job to go to. One had a tutoring session to get to at the Douglas County Library in Lone Tree, so the family decided to join the commuter crowd — and enjoy a breakfast burrito or a banana along the way.

“I told them we're having a fun day. I told them we're having breakfast on the road today,” said Melissa Wiseman, the boys' mother.

Fun — and other reasons like getting exercise and saving money — brought thousands of people out for Colorado's Bike to Work Day. As is fitting for residents of one of the healthiest areas in the country, about 35,000 people around the Denver metro area were expected to set out on two wheels that day.

Stations, like the one the Wisemans stopped at near C-470 along the Willow Creek Trail, popped up throughout the metro region to support the statewide day dedicated to encouraging motorists to consider using alternative forms of transportation.

For Melissa Wiseman and her husband, Todd, it was a chance to support the sport.

“Get out there and ride your bike instead,” Melissa Wiseman said, “and see all your fellow people.”
