The Seattle :: Denver Mutual Admiration Society

Daydreaming for a more bike-friendly city As an active transportation advocate, professional crushes are fun and necessary. Without inspiration, it’s difficult to see what is possible and help others see it with you. At any given time, my professional crushes include a few people (Jay Walljasper and Gil Penalosa), a couple of organizations (PeopleForBikes and…

Volunteers on bikes + books + kids = best bike experience EVER!

I have a lot of great memories from riding a bike. The entire summer of 1978 when I wrapped a plastic jump rope around the handlebars of my blue Schwinn and pretended I was riding my faithful horse ‘Old Blue’. The first time I rode my bike to the park without an…

Calculating the experience of riding a bike

A confession Don’t tell anyone, but I’m a bit of a math geek. The math I use day to day is pretty simple, rarely more interesting than divvying the bill and adding tips at restaurants, but it’s more complex math that makes me swoon.

  • 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.

While many adults fondly reminisce on biking or walking to school, most kids today are being driven to school—and just about everywhere else. 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.
