Bicycle Colorado’s Event Support Program was created to support event directors across the state. We help Colorado cycling events to be safe, inclusive and sustainable. In this role, we:

  • Conduct legislative and advocacy work on behalf of events.
  • Build connections with host communities, insurance providers, law enforcement, permitting agencies and municipalities.
  • Manage our Comprehensive Event Calendar as a service to our community.
  • Work to reduce event date conflicts and mesh our local calendar with national events.
  • Incorporate competitive collegiate events into the local calendar.
  • Support events in their relationship with USA Cycling.
  • Provide access to the Race Kit (which is full of equipment needed to put on a safe and successful event).  This Race Kit, located in Lafayette, is available to BC member clubs at very reasonable pricing. 
  • Assist with preregistration race data integrity and USAC results upload.
  • Assign USAC officials to local races.
  • Purchase insurance certificates for USAC Motor Referees for our member clubs

USA Cycling has recently expanded the amount of resources that are available to event directors.

  • DON’T DELAY: We’re placing another order for #BicycleColorado masks made by our friends at @primalwear TOMORROW (5/14) at noon! Click the link in our bio to get yours now!
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!
