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

  • We’ve heard from a lot of #BicycleColorado members and supporters lately about the joy they’ve felt while riding their bikes in recent days! Our next few posts will feature some of their stories. This one comes from Jenny and Stan S.: “We went with 2 neighbors to Utah prior to the lockdown for solitary bike and hiking. Photos of blue/green MTB trail in Dead Horse State Park. The trails were empty and dry. The visitor center had too many people for my comfort. Later Utah visitor centers closed. Mercifully, most  bathrooms remained open.

We traveled with bleach spray, wipes, gloves, buffs, raincoats (to wear indoors!). We ate inside our car and motel room. PBJ and frozen turkey pot pies.”
