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.
