Bicycle Colorado

Check out the Event Calendar for great 2014 rides

Ride The Rockies

If you’re looking for a great ride this season, you’ll find more than two dozen Colorado bicycle events on our 2014 Event Calendar. Each listed event supports our work as Event Members.

The calendar includes big, familiar rides plus new and emerging events. It highlights the wonderful and diverse organized rides that occur across our state.

Scott Christopher, our development and outreach director, calls the Event Member program “mission critical.”

“Event members provide financial support that has contributed to evolving our relationships with the Colorado Department of Transportation and Colorado State Patrol over the years, making them important partners and collaborators,” Scott says.

The Colorado State Patrol distributes permits to bicycle events, and the transportation department manages road access.

“Both organizations and their leaders understand that bicycling is part of the Colorado brand and culture,” he says. “CDOT provides exceptional support for opening roads for events and more. The state patrol is instrumental in keeping the routes safe for everyone using the roads.”

We’ve also used Event Member support to organize a coalition of Colorado bicycle event leaders that works together to make bicycling better for all event participants.

If you organize a bicycle event and would like to become an Event Member, please contact Scott.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.

  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
