Bicycle Colorado

Welcome to Colorado Bike Month!

As you are probably aware, Colorado celebrates bike month in June (instead of May like most of the country) to hopefully have better weather for bicycling in our communities at higher elevations. So, let’s see what’s happening!

First off, we are hosting a giveaway for tickets to Velorama, the bicycling festival August 11-13 in Denver featuring pro racing, amazing concerts and a packed expo area, including Denver Flea. We’ll give away two sets of tickets each week (starting June 9) with a final VIP grand prize package giveaway at the end of the month! Join or renew today to be entered. Already a monthly member? We’ve got your back – you’re in. Not sure about joining? See full contest rules here.

While you’re at it, you should also sign up for the National Bike Challenge if you haven’t yet. This year’s challenge is tracking everyone’s miles through Strava, and both transportation and recreational miles count. Let’s log some miles and make Colorado a top contender nationally!

With the cycling season kicking into high gear, we’ll have our tent out at several organized events. Riding Elephant Rock? We’ll see you there. Denver Century Ride on Saturday, June 17? Check. We’ll be there! Look for us.

Want to think about trying a new urban cycling adventure? Check out this guest blog post from a Bicycle Colorado member for inspiration.

Also look for us on Bike to Work Day, Wednesday, June 28. We’ll be out at multiple locations, including Civic Center Park and REI in Denver, the Boulder B-cycle office at 38th and Arapahoe in Boulder and more to be announced! There are all sorts of Bike to Work Day activities happening across the state. Let us know what your area is doing that’s fun and unusual.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about Bike to Work Month! It’s a great time to get out and ride, and to help mentor a newer rider to introduce them to the joys of cycling.

  • Happy Thanksgiving! We’re especially thankful for all our members and supporters this holiday season. Without you, our work making Colorado the #1bikestate wouldn’t be possible.
  • Click the link in our bio to schedule a gift to Bicycle Colorado for Colorado Gives Day and support initiatives like our Safe Routes to School program.

While many adults fondly reminisce on biking or walking to school, most kids today are being driven to school—and just about everywhere else. We’re working to make sure the next generation has similar memories—that they are healthy and grow up experiencing their communities through the joy of riding a bike. Donating to Bicycle Colorado on Colorado Gives Day allows us to continue Safe Routes to School and other programs so kids are empowered and have a strong foundation to achieve these goals.
