SHIFT YOUR RIDE MONTH
September 2020 is Shift Your Ride Month in Fort Collins. Simple choices about how we move around can shift extra time and money to things that really matter. Shift to what matters most to you.
SHIFT YOUR RIDE IN SEPTEMBER
Bike Fort Collins and the City of Fort Collins want you to shift your ride in September. Shifting your ride can be easy! There are many ways to get around Fort Collins without using a car, even if you have extra errands to run. While the city has compiled a number of resources on City of Fort Collins Shift Your Ride Page to help you get out of your car and actually enjoy other transportation options (like scooters, walking or transit), of course and as you might expect………
we’re partial to bikes
Shift your ride during the month with one (or more) bike trip each week, whether it be a trip to work, the store, the doctor, a park, or simply a ride around the block.
And, while you’re at it, sign up for Shift Your Ride Challenge. The goal is to get 1,500 community members to take the challenge and go car-free one extra trip per week.
