Make change happen where you live and ride

Since 1992, Bicycle Colorado has been working with state and local officials to make our roads more accessible to bicycles, improve safety for everyone who uses our roadways, build more mountain bike trails and bike paths, and ensure that bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs are included when transportation projects are funded.

A single voice has never gotten a bike lane, path or trail built. When we work together, we can influence policy, redirect funds and change laws so more people can enjoy riding a bike.

Six ways to show your support for bicycling in Colorado

The first step is to stay informed. Our twice-monthly email keeps you up-to-date with Colorado bicycling news, including action alerts for making change.

We’re tracking issues that need public input and letting you know when and how to contact officials to show support for bicycles.

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit and depend on your donations to advance bicycling in Colorado.

The more voices we can count, the stronger we are when speaking up for bicyclists across the state.

Our “share the road” license plates help raise awareness of bicycling in Colorado and encourage everyone who uses our roads to do so courteously and respectfully.

Find an advocacy group near you. If there isn’t one, contact us and we can help you start one.

Working together produces results

The number of people riding bicycles in Colorado is on the rise at the same time that driving is decreasing. But, only 1 percent of transportation funding is dedicated to improving roads, paths and trails for bicycling, for bicycle safety programs and other projects that give people more choices for how to travel in our state. We know we can do better for all of the people who ride a bike in Colorado.

Over nearly three decades, we have built relationships with decision makers so that bicycles are at the table in many state transportation discussions. We rely on support from others who want to make bicycling better in Colorado to get the word out about initiatives, policy changes and proposed laws … because we’re only successful at improving conditions for everyone who rides in our state when we work together.

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.

  • 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!
