Whatever you ride, wherever you ride and whenever you ride, we’re there for you.
We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by all people in our state.
Our mission is to lead a passionate and growing movement that champions the interests of everyone who rides or wants to ride a bicycle in our state.
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
Changed the law so the practice of “rolling coal” is no longer legal
Passed common language for communities to adopt should they think the Colorado Safety Stop is right for them through the state legislature
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 possible 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 92,000 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)
“We appreciate Bicycle Colorado's efforts to lobby on behalf of Colorado cyclists and to advocate for better infrastructure.”
