Thank you for joining Bicycle Colorado at Safe Streets Day! Together, we can make a difference and advocate for better bicycling in the state.

Bills to improve safety for all road users are moving through the state legislature and your voice is needed more than ever. The legislative session only runs through May 4, 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 aides. Talking points on the current legislative bills will be provided to those who register, but what matters most is you sharing your passion for bicycling with legislators.

Your legislators want to hear from YOU, and we will make sure they know that you have shown up.

Please note that while the event is free, we do ask that all attendees register.

Safe Streets Day is made possible with support from

The Latest News

  • We were THRILLED to host @thewaroncars for their first-ever episode recorded in front of a live audience at our #MPFCO conference last week. They chatted with special guest @kyleclark9news about media coverage of safe streets issues and about the mobility scene in Denver. You can listen NOW by clicking the link in our bio. Thanks to the War on Cars team for traveling to Denver—please come back any time! #bicyclecolorado
  • We had our first trip to the Capitol of the session today, working to get the Senate Judiciary to pass SB 061, the bike lane bill. The bill defines bike lanes in Colorado law and establishes that bicyclists have the right-of-way in a bike lane. It passed today by a vote of 3-2! Now it heads to the Senate floor at a time TBD! The bill is sponsored by Senator Mike Foote and Representative KC Becker (Speaker of the House), and @cyclist_lawyer has been instrumental in bringing it forward! #bicyclecolorado
  • #BicycleColorado’s Executive Director, Pete, and Senior Communications and Policy Manager, Jack, spent part of yesterday afternoon live on @koacolorado’s Mandy Connell Show talking about the way we use our streets. We discussed why Colorado communities are investing in bike lanes, how we can educate on the rules of the road and keep everyone safe, the many benefits of bicycling and much more.
