Residents participate in Colorado's Bike to Work Day

Elise Thatcher

Residents in the Roaring Fork Valley pedaled their support for Colorado’s bike to work day yesterday. Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher stopped by a RFTA booth with fortification for riders.

  The Roaring Fork Transportation Authority handed out energy bars, coffee, and other goodies at the Park and Ride Station in Carbondale. “It’s the perfect spot to intersect some people with coffee and snacks,” says Jaime Tatsuno, RFTA’s Communications Manager. “We had a lot of early morning commuters, and now it’s kind of like the recreational bikers are coming through.”

Like previous years, Aspen held a mini festival in Paepke Park to celebrate Bike to Work day. Organizers say about 200 people attended, with some commuting from as far as Glenwood Springs.
