Bicycle Colorado believes that everyone should have the opportunity to become safe and confident bicyclists and enjoy the many benefits of riding a bike. That’s why we developed our Bike School.

We provide resources, knowledge and skills for all ages and levels of riders … and even drivers! From learning how to ride to legally and safely navigating streets and trails, we’re here to help.

Check out our classes and services below or see our education program guide for a full list of offerings. We’re also happy to share resources and information or put you in touch with others who might better serve you.

For more information, including pricing, please contact Bike School. And to volunteer with Bike School, complete our volunteer form and we’ll be in touch!

Learn to Ride

Have you always dreamed of riding a bike but can’t keep your balance? Does teaching your child to ride often end in tears?

Our Bike School Learn to Ride lessons get kids and adults pedaling in a fun, safe and supportive environment. Our effective gliding technique has most students riding within the two hours!

In the first two years of Learn to Ride lessons, we’ve taught more than 150 kids and adults how to ride.

Safe Routes to School

While many adults remember joyfully biking or walking to school, most kids today are driven to school and just about everywhere else. We want to make sure today’s kids have the opportunity to enjoy active transportation so that they are healthy and connected with their communities and their schools experience less congestion and better air quality.

Bike School’s Safe Routes to School programs are a great way to get kids excited about walking and wheeling to school and teach them how to do so safely.

Confident Commuting

When you get around by bike, you save money, help the environment and feel great!

Bike School’s Confident Commuting course can be implemented anywhere—workplaces, community centers or even your local brewery during happy hour.

Participants learn about bike options and gear, safety tips, rules of the road, route-finding, infrastructure and maintenance to increase their confidence on a bike and navigating street and trails.

Bicycle-Friendly Drivers

We want to make Colorado’s urban, rural and mountain roads safer and more courteous. That’s why we offer Bicycle-Friendly Driver certification for groups big and small through the Bike School.

The course covers common crashes, legal and illegal behavior of both motorists and bicyclists, how to navigate street infrastructure and why sharing the road is the safest and best option for all road users.

  • 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
