Help make Colorado’s roads safer for everyone.

Become a certified Bicycle-Friendly Driver or Auto-Friendly Bicyclist!

These programs are designed to teach motorists and bicyclists how to use our streets safely together. The 1.5-hour, interactive courses cover laws for each road user, how to navigate on-street bicycle infrastructure and how to avoid common crashes between motorists and bicyclists. Auto-Friendly Bicyclist also reviews information specific to bicyclists, including how to ride defensively, tips for route planning and how to manage situations unique to bicyclists.

While each course is taught from a different lens (motorist or bicyclist), the two have similar content and all levels of motorists and bicyclists can learn from either course. It is not necessary to participate in both.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate and sticker to display on their motor vehicle or bicycle.

Testimonials from Bicycle Colorado’s certified motorists:

All drivers need to take this class! This should be mandatory.

As a driver, motorcyclist and bicyclist, there was a lot of new information that everyone should know.

Very informative, addressed all topics and provided information that I didn’t know about traffic laws.

I have decades of bicycling experience both work related and personal riding… I took the test before the class and did not ace it.

  • #BicycleColorado’s Executive Director, Pete, and Senior Communications and Policy Manager, Jack, spent part of yesterday afternoon live on @koacolorado’s Mandy Connell Show talking about the way we use our streets. We discussed why Colorado communities are investing in bike lanes, how we can educate on the rules of the road and keep everyone safe, the many benefits of bicycling and much more.
