Bicycle Colorado

5 things we’re grateful for today (and every day)

In the spirit of the season, all of us at Bicycle Colorado would like to thank you, our readers and supporters, for your belief in and help with making bicycling safe, accessible and fun for everyone who rides a bike in Colorado. We are grateful that:

  1. Colorado is an extraordinary place to ride a bicycle (dare we say year round?).
  2. Bicycling is an inherent part of Colorado culture. We ride our bikes to work and to school, we enjoy the great outdoors and get exercise, and we have fun experiences with our families and friends.
  3. 20 Colorado cities and towns have made bicycling a priority, so much so that they are recognized as Bicycle Friendly Communities.
  4. Many Colorado schools have embraced the idea of educating and empowering kids to safely ride and walk to school through programs like Safe Routes to School.
  5. Colorado residents are serious about making change happen to make Colorado even better for riding. By working together, we’re affecting change.

Thank you for being part of Bicycle Colorado!

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.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • 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!
