Bicycle Colorado members speak!
You probably know that Bicycle Colorado is a membership-based organization. Our members are the lifeblood of our advocacy work, providing financial support and the foundation of our political voice.
Bicycle Colorado’s influence is strong because we represent not just our small, passionate staff, but 8,500+ individuals across the state who care deeply about bicycling. That kind of community is hard to ignore!
New members speak out
This year in our fall membership drive, we asked new members to share their main priority for better bicycling in Colorado. We got great responses!

As you might imagine, safe, safer and safety appear a lot, as do words related to bike-friendly infrastructure, like bike lanes, shoulders and trails. I like that the word connecting appears frequently, too. Connecting existing trail systems is one of the goals Colorado is working toward through the Colorado Pedals Project.
My main priority for better bicycling is…
Here are just a few of the great responses we’ve received so far:
Bicycle advocacy & government lobbying
Better—and safer!—connectivity for bicycle routes: urban, city-to-city, & soft-surface trail systems.
Driver awareness education
To promote biking for families
Shoulder lanes on roads & safe/courteous riding education
What’s your priority?
Do you agree with these priorities? What bike improvements is your community working toward? Add your thoughts in the comments.
