It’s really not that uncommon for Denverites to bike to work in the winter, even in snowstorms. In shorts.

But the Denver Regional Council of Governments is perennially interested in making biking ever more common, all year round. That’s why it’s hosting Winter Bike to Work Day on Friday.

It’s okay if you’re not comfortable biking through snowy or icy streets!

“We’re urging some caution,” said Winna MacLaren, a spokeswoman for DRCOG. “If people don’t feel 100 percent comfortable biking, it’s a commitment that can still be made. If not tomorrow, choose another day when the trails are a little more clear and the roads are a little more dry.”

If you do choose to ride tomorrow, here are some stations around the city where you can grab breakfast, coffee, and in some cases, a tuneup.

The Webb Building | Cleveland and 15th | 6:30 – 9 a.m.

Burritos, coffee, hot cocoa, free swag and free bike tune-ups from Elevation Cycles

Breakfast items including eggs, biscuits and chai to fuel your ride

Nixon’s Coffee House | 695 E. Louisiana Ave. | 6 – 10 a.m.

Free coffee.
