Riding your bike or riding RFTA are great ways to cut down on your carbon emissions, that’s why we are celebrating “Bike to Work Day” on June 22nd. In Carbondale, Garfield Clean Energy, CLEER (Clean Energy Economy for the Region), and RFTA are teaming up to staff a similar station at the DeRail Park, across Hwy 133 from the RFTA Park and Ride. The two towns’ efforts will be linked under the banner of BikeThere, the countywide program that Garfield Clean Energy launched last year to promote alternatives to driving.
In addition, cyclists will be able to enter the prize drawing at any Garfield County library throughout the week of June 20.
The grand prize is a Magnum Cosmo S e-bike from Colorado E-Bikes of Glenwood Springs

Biking is a great alternative to driving. It reduces traffic congestion, pollution, fossil fuel dependence, noise, and road wear – plus it’s great for your health.
Try biking to work on June 22, and see if it doesn’t inspire you to do it regularly!
RFTA and the Rio Grande Trail crew will be at the DeRail Park in Carbondale on June 22nd.
