Share the Road license plates raise awareness and encourage everyone to use our roads safely and respectfully. With nearly 6,000 plates on Colorado vehicles, together we’re spreading the word while raising funds to help make Colorado an even more bicycle-friendly state.

We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by all people in our state.
Share the Road license plates enable Bicycle Colorado to encourage safe driving behaviors. The funds raised from plate purchases go directly to our share the road education fund. Learn more about some of the educational programming we are doing to further encourage drivers and bicyclists to share the road.
