The West Colfax corridor has a little elevation gain, but it’s the stunning views across Sloan’s Lake that will leave you breathless!  A mix of bike lanes, sharrow marked roads and multi use paths, this perhaps is the most scenic corridor of them all!

  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
  • Volunteer with us for a few hours at @veloswap on Saturday, November 2 and help us make our 10,000 member movement even stronger! Click the link in our bio to sign up for your shift. 
Let’s bring more members to the movement and further strengthen our voice. Our goal is 200 new members in one BIG day. See you there! #bicyclecolorado
