Kathy Haruf donated in memory of her daughter, Andrea Koenig (pictured). Kathy wrote:

Andrea was an athlete who had a heart of gold and a love for all things outdoors. One of those loves was women’s cycling. She rode for the Boulder Masters Cycling Team and was a member of the Bike Racing Association of Colorado (BRAC).

Bill Hörger dedicated his Colorado Gives Day donation to Guido’s Goons, a Bike MS Colorado Team. He wrote:

We are dedicated to the MS cause, and we are all avid cyclists. The work that Bicycle Colorado does directly affects our Team. Safer streets and roads, better trails, and legislative initiatives make all our cycling safer, regardless of whether we are on an organized ride or cycling alone. I gave in honor of our Team because we understand dedication to a cause, and that’s what we see in Bicycle Colorado: dedication and commitment. The photo attached is about half of our Team. Thanks for all Bicycle Colorado does for cyclists in Colorado!

The next Bike MS Colorado event is June 29-30, 2024.

Lane Lawrence donated in memory of riding teammate Sue “Sprint” Gregory (pictured). Lane wrote:

Sprint was a vibrant, full of life, always laughing and making others smile-type character in the lives of our Blue Suit Pacers Cycling team family there in Virginia; a deeply committed soul to her friends and family, Sprint offered deep encouragement and nurturing to others her entire life and an amazing companion to her husband and soulmate, Rod. Sprint rode the mid-Atlantic Tour De Cure event hosted by the American Diabetes Association for several years as a ‘Red Rider’ and deeply understood the event was more than just a bike ride–it was about fostering community and fellowship, about raising awareness and conveying knowledge, and championing a cause close to her heart. In honor of Sprint and her treasured impact to the lives of her teammates and to her community, our team is riding the 2024 Tour De Cure in her honor and providing donations and contributions to other cycling-centric charities in her name.

Julie Reiskin made a Colorado Gives Day donation to Bicycle Colorado/Denver Streets Partnership and dedicated it to her colleague Jaime Lewis (pictured), the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition’s Transportation Advocate. Julie wrote:

Jaime Lewis is dedicated to transit and livable communities for all. He is a true community leader and comes from a place of service and listening. He has been active in everything transit-related in Denver for more than a decade.

Thank you, Julie and Jaime! Donors can support the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, Denver Streets Partnership, and Bicycle Colorado, at coloradogives.org.

Colorado Gives Day is December 5, 2023.

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.

  • 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!
