Wheel'n to work

An Durango’s second annual Bike to Work Day took place Wednesday morning as crowds of environmentally conscious cycling enthusiasts gathered on Main Avenue to promote pedal-powered transportation. Cyclists mingled over complimentary
coffee and baked goods before shoving off to work. The sidewalk filled with wide-eyed hopefuls as winners were announced in the morning raffle. Jay Hardesty was the day’s big winner as he walked away with an Electra cruiser donated
by Durango Cyclery.
