Bicycle Colorado hosts Congressman Blumenauer

Bicycle Colorado recently hosted Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer here in Colorado with the help of a number of prominent representatives of the bicycle industry and community.

The group shared Colorado success stories that illustrate the benefits of funding bicycle infrastructure for him to take back to Washington, DC.

Following a bike tour of Denver, a group lunch provided additional time to provide insight on the value of bicycling in Colorado both as an economic generator and a community builder.

Congressman Blumenauer is a long-time supporter of bicycling and founder of the Congressional Bike Caucus. Thank you to our friends at Denver B-cycle for providing the group with bicycles.

  • Thanks to everyone who came out wanting to do their part to make our streets safer at last night’s Bicycle-Friendly Driver course in Lakewood! We did hear feedback that our cookies were too small—we heard you, we’ll try and do better 😂.
  • Now that’s just mean. No bike (or bicyclist!) deserves this!
  • Beautiful day for a bike commute. #bicyclecolorado
