Commuters across Colorado Springs will trade four wheels for two Wednesday for the 25th annual Bike to Work Day, the capstone of Colorado Bike Month.

Bicyclists registered with the City of Colorado Springs will have access to breakfast stations between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. along the city's trail network and at local businesses, including Ivywild, Over Easy and Buffalo Lodge.

For the commute home, breweries and bars will offer reduced price and, in some cases, free beer.

Bike to Work Day is a staple of Colorado Bike Month. Other events included Sunday family bike rides, mountain bike rides hosted by the Women's Mountain Biking Association of Colorado Springs and Hump Day group rides on Wednesdays with Criterium Bicycles.

"We can't just be promoting the one day for people to bike to work," said the city's senior bicycle planner, Kate Brady. "Maybe you can bike to get a pint or a coffee, go to the playground or the library. There's value in people, families, biking to more places than just work.
