Bicycle Colorado is working to make this the number one state for bicycling. Our mission is to encourage and promote bicycling, increase safety, improve conditions and provide a voice for bicyclists in Colorado.

Whatever you ride, wherever you ride and whenever you ride, we’re there for you.

Bicycle Colorado uses the tools of education and advocacy to make Colorado one of the most bicycle-friendly states. We encourage and promote bicycling, increase safety, improve conditions and provide a voice for people who ride bicycles in Colorado. With the support of our members and numerous public and private sector partnerships, we’ve made significant strides in improving bicycling since 1992.

Major Achievements

  • Gained hundreds of miles of new shoulders for riding bicycles on state roads
  • Changed the law to allow side-by-side riding when it’s safe to do so
    Changed the law to require drivers to give bicyclists 3 feet when passing and allows cars to cross a double-yellow line to safely pass
  • Changed the law so people riding bicycles can signal right turns with their right hands and so they can ride through a crosswalk instead of dismounting
  • Advocated for a bicycle and pedestrian project design guide to be used by transportation planners statewide
  • Protected and improved important mountain bike trails, and ensured mountain biker representation in planning and preserving open space
  • Ended bicycle bans around the state, including bans on riding bikes on specific roads, on racing events and even on bringing your bike on light rail trains
  • Tightened the hit-and-run loophole to make possibly penalties equal to drunk driving
  • Developed relationships with lawmakers and policy makers on both sides of the aisle, including the governor’s office, the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Denver Regional Council of Governments
  • Taught more than 70,000 Colorado kids to safely ride their bikes and walk to school, and hundreds of adults how to safely commute to work (and use their bikes for errands and nearby trips)

Testimonial

“Bicycle Colorado stands for all the things an avid cyclist like me wants to see in a bicycle friendly community: Safe Routes to School, 3 Feet to Pass and protected bike lanes. That's why I am a proud member and volunteer.”
