Boulder Celebrates 9th Annual 'Tube To Work Day'

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) - Friday is the ninth annual Tube To Work Day in Boulder. Begun by two men in 2008, attendance jumped to over 200 participants in 2015.

Participants should bring their own tube to Eben G. Fine Park, the Boulder Creek drop in point. A helmet and closed toed shoes are mandatory, and a wet suit recommended.

A Facebook page holds all the details, including an update on the creek: flow is low so tubers can expect mellow waters, "longer commute times," and perhaps more rocks.

In the spirit of discouraging the use of a personal, a shuttle service is available from a parking lot at 4780 Pearl East Circle beginning at 7 a.m. The commute begins at 8.
