We teach new e-bike owners how to safely and confidently use their e-bikes!

E-bikes allow more people to bike, and can give folks more flexibility, convenience, and power that allows them to use their bikes more often. Thanks to e-bike rebate programs in many communities around the state as well as statewide programs, there are a lot of new e-bike riders out there!

Bicycle Colorado is working hard to increase access to e-bikes for more people in Colorado, and to advocate for the infrastructure and policies that will make our streets and trails safer for riders, new and experienced alike.

Our E-Bike 101 course will help new e-bike owners get familiar with how e-bikes work, how to decide what type of e-bike works best for their needs, and how to be a confident and happy e-bike rider. Learn more and register below!

This course is jointly presented by Bicycle Colorado and the Denver Streets Partnership.

We will cover what an electric bicycle is, how to handle your e-bike battery, where you can ride e-bikes, and best practices for rider safety, and etiquette when on your e-bike. This course is designed to provide everything you need to know before and after you start riding an e-bike.

This webinar will be offered online for free every Wednesday night from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Please register in advance to receive the online invite!

People riding different bikes, including a few adults on e-bikes and  small child on a kids bike, ride on the street.


Household motor vehicle trips are one of the biggest sources of transportation emissions in the country. In 2017, about 75% of household motor vehicle trips were just 10 miles or less. For short to medium-length trips like these, e-bikes can be an incredible mobility and emissions solution.

Compared to traditional bikes, e-bikes allow more people to ride further, across harder terrain, with groceries or children, at an older age or with mobility issues, and more. Plus, you’re reducing your carbon footprint!
