We believe riding a bike should be accessible, safe and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of skill level, age, gender, race or socioeconomic status. That thinking is also why, in 2017, the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) established the Active Bike Corridors (ABCs) on Bike to Work Day.

Now, two years later, Bicycle Colorado in partnership with Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and longtime Bicycle Colorado board member, Graham Hollis, we’re launching a new and exciting program to highlight and promote these seven high-comfort corridors throughout the Denver metro area. The aim of the ABCs is to engage with new riders and exiting riders throughout the metro community 365 days a year, to ditch their car and hop on their saddle. 

Whether  you’re commuting to work, school, the playground, grocery shopping or out for date night, Bicycle Colorado has you covered with these seven corridors. 




While on these diverse corridors you’ll be in the company of a variety of people biking with a range of experience levels. These routes have been identified using data from Strava and Public Works to be the safest and most efficient for the Denver metro bicycling community; and you’ll find there’s a place for you too! 


Our aim is to get new riders on the corridor who are curious and new to commuting by bike in Denver. We are doing this by creating a variety of educational opportunities, offering programing and guided group commuter rides.

Some of the programs we’ll be offering are:

  • Friday Group Work Commuter Rides 
  • Confident Commuter Classes 
  • Basic Bicycle Mechanics Classes 
  • Learn to Ride Classes 
  • Winter Riding 101 
  • Family/Youth Guided Rides

Below you’ll find information about the rides and how to sign up.

  • Thanks to everyone who came out wanting to do their part to make our streets safer at last night’s Bicycle-Friendly Driver course in Lakewood! We did hear feedback that our cookies were too small—we heard you, we’ll try and do better 😂.
  • Now that’s just mean. No bike (or bicyclist!) deserves this!
  • Beautiful day for a bike commute. #bicyclecolorado
