New study quantifies benefits cycling offers Colorado

A new study released by multiple state agencies found that bicycling contributes significantly to Colorado’s economy ($1.6 billion in 2015), and that almost half of the state’s adults rode a bicycle in the past year, making Colorado one of the most active states in the nation. Bicycle Colorado partnered with several agencies and…

Consider a bicycle tour for your next vacation

I fell in love with bicycle touring at the age of 27 when I rode my first Ride The Rockies. Experiencing our state via bicycle is a splendid way to spend a week. I have been hooked on cycling vacations ever since. It’s the combination of being outdoors all day, the camaraderie…

¡Viva la Ciclovía!

I love cities, travel and bikes. What could be better than exploring a new, exciting urban space from the saddle of a bike?

Bikes on the other side of the world

At the Colorado Bicycle Summit back in February, Mikael Colville-Andersen spoke about striving for the point where bikes are like vacuum cleaners—most everyone has one, most everyone uses theirs and we don’t really feel the need to talk about them because they’re so ubiquitous. I recently took a trip to Cambodia, and I was reminded of…

A nice place to be…on a bike!

Like most of you (I’d guess), my family and I love to travel.  You see new places, meet new people and stoke up on new adventures. One of the things I enjoy is the chance to check out transportation facilities in other communities, especially the walking and biking kind, and see how the locals…

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!
