DENVER -- Wednesday is Bike to Work Day in Colorado in which more than 16,000 people are expected to participate, almost triple the amount of bikes that are usually on the roads. But if you are not riding to work, keep an eye out for those who are.

Dozens of breakfast stations will be set up throughout the city beginning at 6:30 a.m. to thank those who are participating. There is one at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and at Civic Center Park.

Anyone who registers with the Denver Regional Council of Governments is eligible to enter a random drawing for prizes.

"We want to celebrate people's promise to take their bikes to work. We're going to have the largest breakfast station in Denver and we want to educate people in how we're expanding Denver's bike program and cycling landscape," said a spokeswoman with Denver Public Works. "We have 138 miles of bike lanes so this is a very exciting time as Denver grows."
