On June 1, we’re hosting our largest annual fundraiser and the best bike party in town. Bicycle Colorado has been advocating for people on bikes for over 30 years and we want to celebrate that, while also taking advantage of the unique political landscape we are in right now. With big shifts in state policy and laws that are making it easier for Coloradans to bike, we are ready to dig deeper, but we need your help!

This year’s Gear Up! Fundraiser features a live, in-person auction on the evening of June 1, as well as an online silent auction leading up to the party.

The event is going to be a lot of fun, and with your help, it will strengthen the bike advocacy movement, too. We can’t wait to reveal more soon!

Date: Thursday, June 1, 2023

Time: 6:00-8:30 p.m.

Location: McNichols Civic Center Building, 144 W Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80202

Beer, wine, hors d’oeuvres and a sit down dessert provided.

  • DON’T DELAY: We’re placing another order for #BicycleColorado masks made by our friends at @primalwear TOMORROW (5/14) at noon! Click the link in our bio to get yours now!
We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
