We need your voice on February 27!

Save the date–Tuesday, February 27 from 8-10 a.m.–and join us at the Colorado State Capitol to advocate for better bicycling in the state and be a part of democracy in action.

Bills to improve bicycling and increase transportation options are moving through the state legislature and your voice is needed more than ever. The legislative session only runs through May, so now is a critical time to show up and speak up. Do it for yourself, your kids, your riding buddies and individuals who can’t be there.

This is your chance to share with legislators how important better bicycling and safer streets are to you.

We will offer a light breakfast and coffee for attendees, legislators and legislative aids. Talking points on the current legislative bills will be provided, but what matters most is you sharing your passion for bicycling with legislators.

For complete details, read this blog post on what to expect.

  • Meet Scott Kubly, our 2018 Moving People Forward keynote speaker!

The architect of the award-winning Move Seattle plan, Kubly helped transform Seattle into an urban model of multimodal transportation, in which 95 percent of the nearly 45,000 jobs created in the past few years have been filled by people who walk, bike or take public transit to work. Kubly has helped countless city leaders and urban planners proactively address challenges in the ever-changing urban transportation landscape.
Kubly will share his vision for how Coloradans can address current transportation demands while planning for the future. His insight will be invaluable for anyone wondering how Colorado infrastructure can keep up with the increasing demands of an growing population.
