  • Happy Thanksgiving! We’re especially thankful for all our members and supporters this holiday season. Without you, our work making Colorado the #1bikestate wouldn’t be possible.
  • Click the link in our bio to schedule a gift to Bicycle Colorado for Colorado Gives Day and support initiatives like our Safe Routes to School program.

We’re working to make sure the next generation has similar memories—that they are healthy and grow up experiencing their communities through the joy of riding a bike. Donating to Bicycle Colorado on Colorado Gives Day allows us to continue Safe Routes to School and other programs so kids are empowered and have a strong foundation to achieve these goals.
