Welcome to the Event Support Program

Bicycle Colorado has supported bike riders, bicycle policy, bike infrastructure and cycling events for more than 32 years. Colorado offers the most comprehensive and diverse selection of high-quality competitive and non-competitive cycling events for people of all ages and abilities. We work to build meaningful connections between quality events and cycling clubs, bicycle education efforts, bike-friendly advocacy work and relationships with host communities, permitting agencies, CDOT and law enforcement. 

With our expanded Event Support Program, Bicycle Colorado grows its reach and connections with the Colorado bicycling community to grow the movement of people who want to improve the safety, convenience and fun of bicycling in Colorado for everyone. We serve as the Local Association (LA) for USA Cycling in Colorado.

 

Our Event Support Program offers:

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!
