Bike to Work Day a Big Hit at DPL

Abby Hoverstock heads for the Western History reference desk after biking to work.

About twice as many DPL emplyees as usual took advantage of the Bike to Work Day hospitality spots along their route to the Central library across from Civic Center Park on Wednesday June 23rd.

Making the trip to the Central branch on bicycle is always a good idea, and the food and other festivities along the way provided an added incentive for about 40 DPL employees.

Free parking in a secure room enhance the option for employees everyday, but nearly double the usual number of bike riders meant late comers had to scramble to find a parking spot in the bike room. The annual Bike to Work Day encourages Denverites to use the greenest mode of rapid transit yet devised.
