Bike to Work Day with goodnessknows and Mile High Mamas
posted by: Amber Johnson
Do you want to add some goodness into your life? Mile High Mamas is partnering with goodnessknows snack squares to celebrate Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, June 22 and we want you to join in the fun–at our ride or on your own!
The Denver metro area boasts 250+ stations for Bike to Work Day that offer free breakfast, water, or a full-on bike party! Whether you’re biking to work or to the park with your kids, biking is such a great way to commute while getting exercise and reducing your carbon footprint. If you live near Arvada, we’d love you to join us for our festivities where we’ll be handing out goodnessknows “Gear Up and Go” bags for our riders (while supplies last), along with oodles of product samples of the ultimate on-the-go bite-sized snacks, goodnessknows snack squares.
Mile High Mamas Route
What: Bring your kids and enjoy the beautiful Colorado sunshine along the Ralston Creek Trail that will start with a FREE breakfast at the official Bike to Work station at Memorial Park.
When: Wednesday, June 22. Breakfast between 7:30-8 a.m.; we will depart promptly at 8 a.m.
Where: Meet at Memorial Park, 8001 W. 59th Avenue, Arvada (behind Arvada City Hall). After breakfast, we will bike approximately 3 miles to Oak Park (behind Campbell Elementary). We’ll keep going along Ralston Creek for anyone who is interested or you may turn around and loop back to Memorial Park.
Why: To have fun and enjoy the outdoors! For our Bike to School Day last month, we invited all our neighborhood friends over for breakfast and we had a blast biking to school together. We hope to recreate these memories to last a lifetime for Bike to Work Day.
No matter your biking experience, goodnessknows is helping people take a small step to go from good to great! And the fun isn’t over once you arrive at your destination. Bring your Frisbee and try out the Roberts Disc Golf Course at Memorial Park. Careen down one of the steepest (and fastest) slides at the adjacent playground. Backtrack 0.5-mile and picnic at the new Ralston-Central Park as you race through the spray fountains (5850 Garrison Street). Make a day of it with your friends!
Snack (and Bike) Happy
Before you head out, don’t forget to bring water, your helmet, sunscreen and pack a nutritious and satisfying on-the-go snack. goodnessknows snack squares are one of my family’s go-to’s. If you’re not familiar with these delicious and amazingly satisfying snack combines the goodness of whole nuts, real fruit like cranberries and tart cherries, toasted oats and dark chocolate with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners with naturally occurring cocoa flavanols. Each 150-calorie bar is divided into four perfectly portioned squares – allowing you to eat just the amount that’s right for you. Denver was one of goodnessknows’ original test markets and we’ve been fans ever since!
Whether you choose to join us in Arvada or hold your own Bike to Work Day with friends (start your planning here), the Denver area has hundreds of miles of paved recreational trails available to offer a comfortable ride. Just remember to #TryALittleGoodness and we’ll see you out on the trail!
