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.

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!
