Registration for the annual Colorado Bicycle Summit is now open! Join us in celebrating all-things-bicycling and being part of the bigger bicycling conversation. This fun event is dedicated to educating and empowering attendees, identifying common bicycling trends and solutions in our communities and setting priorities to improve the future of bicycling in Colorado.
Our plenary panel and breakout sessions will focus on advocacy issues large and small, from those that affect Coloradans statewide to those that are more relevant to our state’s smaller mountain communities, as well as other trends in the bike world.
Our summit also coincides with the Steamboat Bike Festival–whether or not you’re a Bike Town USA local, you can make a weekend out of our Steamboat summit. And if you sign up for the summit, you’ll also get 20% off registration for the festival–email firstname.lastname@example.org to take advantage of this deal!
We hope to see everyone at the Draft event by our friends at PeopleForBikes at 6 p.m!
E-Bikes are here to stay, but what’s next in the e-Bike world? We’ll unpack fact from fiction and share pros, cons and how communities are working towards harmony in the new e-Bike reality.
The Steamboat Solution: From heads in beds to butts on bikes Learn from the success and lessons learned by an innovative private/public trail funding effort. Steamboat’s 2A Amendment was passed in 2013 and by 2023 will have committed $5.1M in trail building funds. Summit attendees will ride trails this weekend that were built from 2A funding. Come learn how they came to be and how to implement in your community.
Driver’s Ed: A “behind the (steering) wheel” approach to bike-safety education Colorado’s bicycle safety statistics aren’t good. That’s why we’re taking bike safety education directly to drivers statewide. See our Bicycle-Friendly Drivers curriculum inspired by our friends at FC Bikes and learn where we’re taking the program next.
Unpacking the Colorado Safety Stop: Coming soon to a community near you? Bicycle Colorado helped pass SB 144–the Colorado Safety Stop bill–in the legislature this spring. Learn more about the bill, including what changed from previous years to get it passed, and take a deeper look in to the arguments for and against the Safety Stop. We’ll also dive in to how to get implementation where you live and ride if you think the Safety Stop is right for your community.
#ThingsInTheBikeLane: Building a crowd-sourced, low-cost advocacy campaign Learn from a successful crowdsourcing case study – Things in the Bike Lane – and how you can implement a relevant grassroots program in your community with limited resources to bring about change.
