Welcome to Colorado Bike Month!

As you are probably aware, Colorado celebrates bike month in June (instead of May like most of the country) to hopefully have better weather for bicycling in our communities at higher elevations.

Thank you…

Colorado Pedals Project Year 1: CDOT Region 1

A bill proposed in the Colorado legislature would allow bicyclists to treat stop signs as yield and red lights as stop signs if the coast is clear. Sponsored by Senator Andy Kerr, Senate Bill 93 is supported by Bicycle Colorado.

Forward Thinking

How do you commute to work every day? To the grocery store, gym and local brew pub? What resources and alternate modes of transportation are accessible to you? How much does mobility play in your daily happiness and quality of life? For me, my quality of life directly correlates with my ability…

Meet Anthony, a Colorado transportation planner “riding the ride”

Anthony Avery is a bike-friendly multi-modal transportation planner, a member of the Millennial generation and a proud supporter of Bicycle Colorado.

Incredibly hard and extremely fun

Racing and loving cyclocross at 50 Cyclocross. How does one begin to describe it? It involves racing laps over varied terrain with supportive derision (heckling) and obstacles like sand, mud, barricades, steep ups and downs, ridiculous turns and off-camber things most people wouldn’t choose to ride willingly. Every time I line up…

The positive proof just keeps piling up

Quite a bit of research crosses our desks regarding the benefits of bicycling and the infrastructure that supports it. These studies show that encouraging cycling and providing safe ways to do it not only benefit those who pedal, but also the cities in which people ride and even those who do not…

Enlightenment at 12 miles per day

I’m new to the Bicycle Colorado staff, but not to bicycle advocacy or riding bikes. That said, the last few weeks have been an education in bicycling on an entirely new level than what has been known to me for two decades. The 12 miles I ride most days give me more…

Action Alert: Will Denver include bikes in the bond?

It’s GO time: If you want more and better bicycling, then Denver needs you! The city intends to pursue a general obligation bond (GO Bond) in 2017 to support funding shortfalls for all kinds of projects, including transportation and parks. Public input will be critical and is necessary to encourage funding for…
