One reason Nat Miullo rides his bike from his home in Wheat Ridge to his workplace in Denver is soaring gas prices.
Another reason is time.
“My commute, with parking included, takes 30 minutes while riding my bike only takes 25,” Miullo said.
Other bike riders who participated in the 49th annual Bike to Work Day on Wednesday also cited fuel costs.
And with gas prices an average of $2.07 a gallon in Denver according to Fuel Price Finder, some residents are buckling their helmets instead of seat belts.
