Urban bike commuting for downtown workers


This program is no longer running. This page remains up for reference.


Neighborhood Navigators matches up experienced bike commuters—Navigators—with less experienced “would-be bike commuters.” Our trained, vetted and paid Navigators will show you, turn by turn, block by block how to commute by bike from your home to work and back—safely and conveniently. Think of it as the “Uber for the interested but concerned, wanna-be bike commuter!”

Bike to work with a Neighborhood Navigator.

The service is currently FREE for anyone who works in downtown Denver and commutes in from fewer than five miles away. If you live and work in our “Home Zone ” you may be eligible to receive up to four FREE Neighborhood Navigator bike trips.

Our goal is to help 1,800 people replace a Single Occupancy Vehicle (SOV) commute trip with a bike commute trip at least once a week—that’s equivalent to freeing up a lane on Colfax stretching from Wadsworth Boulevard to Colorado Boulevard! 

people drive alone into downtown Denver every day from less than 5 miles away.

Don’t be one of them! Save time, sanity and money by riding your bike to work. 


of Denver workers would bike to work if they felt safer, had the skills, knew the best route and had more confidence.

Our Neighborhood Navigator program helps people with all the above. 

Let us show you a better way to get around.

  • DON’T DELAY: We’re placing another order for #BicycleColorado masks made by our friends at @primalwear TOMORROW (5/14) at noon! Click the link in our bio to get yours now!
We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike!

  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
