COLORADO SPRINGS — BikeToBizCOS Week kicked off Monday to encourage residents to ride bicycles and support local businesses.

During this week, organizers are encouraging people to ride their bikes to local businesses instead of driving. News5 is one of the sponsors of BikeToBizCOS Week.

Wednesday of this week would have been Bike to Work Day, but the pandemic has caused the day to evolve into a week-long event.

"This year, in light of the struggles the pandemic has caused, let’s practice safe social distancing on our bikes to help our business community stay strong," the City of Colorado Springs stated on its website.

To participate in the event, you can ride to your favorite local business and share a photo with #BikeToBizCOS on Twitter or Instagram. You can also join the Facebook group by clicking here.

News5 will be sharing stories about this event throughout the week. For more information, click here.
