Colorado's Bike to Work Day already draws the second largest crowd in the nation.

"We know it's more healthy, we know it's better for your wallet, your finances, we know it's better for our environment, particularly air quality, and I think we'd all agree it's much better than being stuck in traffic," Erickson said.
