BOULDER (AP) – Thousands of Coloradans are expected to leave their cars at home and ride their bicycles instead.

The Daily Camera reports that nearly 4,000 people have signed up for Boulder’s bike-to-work day Wednesday. Organizers say thousands more could join in.

A record 48 breakfast stations will be open across Boulder for cyclists. Riders will have to make their way around some paths closed because of high water in Boulder Creek from the above-normal snowmelt.

The Denver Regional Council of Governments estimates that 17,000 people in the Denver area participated in last year’s bike-to-work day. The Denver Post reports participants collectively pedaled more than 300,000 miles.

The Colorado Legislature designated June as Colorado Bike Month, with the fourth Wednesday of the month designated as bike-to-work day.
