Studies show that bike commuting can improve mental and physical health while also connecting you to your community, saving you money and helping the environment.
Interest in bicycle commuting is growing by the day, and we are working to make Colorado the best place to ride through infrastructure and legislation that make this choice safer and more accessible.
Our Confident Commuting programs are meant to help adults feel more confident while riding. And we recognize that people interested in commuting have varying levels of confidence today, that’s why we offer several different options for you to choose from based on your comfort level.
Read more about each below.
When you bike commute to work or school you’ll save money and feel great! Your employer will thank you too—they can save money when YOU ride. Wellness programs are proven to save health care and absenteeism costs.
In a study of 72 wellness programs, every $1 invested in a wellness program saved businesses $4 on health care costs and $5 in reduced absenteeism costs. Pass it along.
Our navigator program, led by mobility program director James Waddell, connects new riders to more experienced bike commuters around central Denver. You can think of it as a “bike-hailing” service for people interested in riding but who’d like an assist in getting started.
We plan to launch the program in the fall of 2019. Once we’ve launched, people who want to ride more can request a navigator to show up and help them learn new routes, navigate traffic and learn the rules of the road! The navigator program is made possible with Transportation Demand Management Set-aside funding.

We want to make commuting in the Denver area as easy as can be. Our Active Bike Corridor (ABC) program aims to increase rides into and around Denver using seven key bike corridors and a whole lot of local partners and community engagement to get more people out riding more often. Routes were sourced to activate communities surrounding the city core with input from Denver Regional Council of Government (DRCOG), Strava and Denver Public Works, and it is made possible with Transportation Demand Management Set-aside funding.
Enjoy Friday group commuter rides, family and youth rides and classes in confident commuting, basic bike maintenance and more. Contact Education Program Coordinator Chris Winn at email@example.com to start your adventure!
When you’re ready to get started, gather some co-workers or friends and let’s get pedaling!
We are currently offering a variety of programs that can be implemented anywhere—workplaces, community centers or even your local brewery during happy hour.
Participants learn essential traffic, safety, navigation and maintenance skills to increase their confidence while bike commuting, and everyone who takes our classes pedals away with a full manual to dive deeper into topics of interest.
We know all organizations, businesses and communities have a unique culture and set of opportunities and needs, and we’re happy to customize the program for each client. Sessions are available individually or as a package. Below is the current list of classes we are offering.
