Colorado Athletic Club is proud to support Walk and Bike Month for another year, and nothing thrills us more than serving our community in the spirit of health and wellness.
Can you name a city that embraces biking more than Boulder? With over 300 miles of dedicated bikeways, we can’t. Colorado Athletic Club is honored to play a role in maintaining this lifestyle. Pedal on, Boulder!
In 2018, Google announced that we had reached our goal of having 100% renewable energy for our global operations — including both our data centers and offices. Supporting Walk and Bike Month, and reducing the number of cars on our roads, is an extension of this commitment that sits at the heart of our company culture and the Boulder community. It helps both us and our users reduce our impact on the environment while at the same time increasing the quality of life in our communities.
We support Walk & Bike Month because we care about making biking accessible to everyone. While most of our riders own their own bikes, B-cycle allows them to bike more often, in circumstances that they otherwise wouldn't be able to—like take one way trips on a bike, or connect to public transit. We're also excited to provide an easy entry point back into cycling for those who want to hop back on a bike after a long period of inactivity, but may not want to commit to buying or maintaining a bike.
why BTC supports Walk and Bike Month
Walk and Bike Month not only gets people on bikes and walking, it is a signature summer event in Boulder. The incredible Bike to Work Day breakfasts are a great thank you to regular riders. Why not walk and ride on over 300 miles of dedicated bikeways? It’s a great opportunity to pause and take stock of your day as well as to enjoy your surroundings. For those with any questions on their transportation options, we are here to help!
Twitter is what’s happening in the world and what people are talking about right now. Walk and Bike Month is happening! It’s essential to our culture that we participate in things that have extraordinary impact on the community and the world which is why we are proud supporters of Walk and Bike Month and participate in a Wish for Wheels event every year. We encourage everyone to walk or bike their commute and share the experience on Twitter with #BTWD2018 and #BikeToWorkDay!

Alpine Bank Can’t Wait to Bring Community Banking Back to Boulder
Alpine Bank, Member FDIC, may be the new kid in town, but it is also a trusted Colorado brand that can’t wait to share its approach to community banking with Boulder. Opening its first branch here at Canyon and Folsom in early 2019, Alpine Bank is committed to giving back to the community.
- Bank employees volunteered more than 14,000 hours in 2017 to nonprofits in the 28 Colorado communities they serve.
- Last year Alpine donated $3.7 million to support hundreds of community organizations working to strengthen these cities and towns.
- Customers directed the bank to donate more than $1 million on their behalf to community programs customers selected through Alpine’s popular debit card.
As an independent, employee-owned bank, Alpine takes great pride in being Colorado born, bred and focused. Begun in 1973, headquartered in Glenwood Springs, it now serves more than 130,000 customers with 39 banking offices across the state. With recent expansion on the Front Range, the new Boulder location will join Alpine’s Union Station, Cherry Creek and DTC (opening this summer) branches in Denver.
Alpine Bank Boulder President Chris Maughan is very excited about Alpine’s new LEED Gold–certified Boulder location, featuring a rooftop 21.6 kwh solar system among its many sustainable building attributes. Maughan said that pursuing a green design, “is not only built into Alpine’s business model but also is a natural extension of the bank’s grassroots environmental initiative led by its Green Team employees since 2005.”
Alpine Bank is proud to partner with an organization such as Community Cycles for Boulder’s Walk + Bike to Work Month. The bike to work movement aligns well with Alpine Bank’s core values and the mission of its Green Team. Alpine Bank supports Community Cycles’ mission and the advancement of pedestrian and bicycle culture across the state of Colorado.
Conscience Bay Company believes in supporting alternative modes of transportation as a way to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. We are proud of Community Cycles work supporting bicycle transportation and Bike To Work Day.
Walk and Bike Month offers great support and motivation to leave your car at home and commute in a more Earth-friendly way. With an active and environmentally conscious community and a love for our spectacular Colorado outdoors, for over 10 years Xilinx has been a proud of sponsor Walk and Bike Month!
May the wind be always at your back!
From a Xilinx, Colorado employee who walks or bikes every day, Marc Littmann:
What a great opportunity to ditch the car and arrive to work in style—powered by your own 2 feet! While it certainly helps to live just 2 miles from work, Xilinx employees from all across the county and beyond are loving the ride in, the fresh air and the sense of accomplishment. Ever since becoming a one car family nearly 3 years ago, I have been walking and biking every day, rain or snow, and find it to be the highlight of my day. Be careful to not enjoy going carless too much, or you just might sell your car and walk or bike every day!

Pivot3 embraces Community Cycles’ mission and the advancement of pedestrian and bicycle culture across the state of Colorado.
Continual enhancement of our existing multimodal system ranks high on the list of Boulder County’s goals. An excellent multi-modal system is safe, efficient and convenient for people who walk, bicycle and take transit throughout the county. A multimodal system gives everyone transportation choices. Boulder County supports Walk and Bike Month to celebrate transportation options and to encourage those new to biking and walking for mobility to see all the benefits of these modes.
