Ok, not really. Unless you want to ride to work in a ball gown, then by all means Bike to Work like the Princess you are!

Tomorrow is the 2012 Colorado Bike to Work Day and it also happens to be Bike Night, too! Bicycle Longmont and the City of Longmont have done a stellar job lining up a total of SEVENTEEN! (17) stations for your cruising pleasure!
