Bicycle Colorado is a membership-driven 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 1992. We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by all people in our state. We are recognized as one of the nation’s most prominent organizations of our kind.
We advocate for bicycle-friendly policies and infrastructure, and provide educational support to help kids and adults ride a bicycle safely and with confidence. We also educate drivers to safely operate their vehicles in harmony with bicycles on the road.
Bicycle Colorado’s Denver advocacy arm, the Denver Streets Partnership, works to reclaim Denver’s streets for people walking, rolling, biking, and using transit, and to build safe, healthy, and equitable communities. To do so, the Denver Streets Partnership connects decision makers and Denver residents with diverse perspectives, timely information, and practical solutions to reduce our city’s dependence on cars and design communities that prioritize people. The Denver Streets Partnership believes in an equitable and vibrant Denver that guarantees our public spaces are designed for people and with human dignity as the guiding principle for the design of our transportation system.
Together, our team strives to build a movement that advocates for safe streets and more accessible biking. We collaborate with a variety of constituent groups, including elected officials, government agencies, bike industry organizations, community leaders and other nonprofits.

The Organizing Manager position is a full-time position for someone who is passionate about people-friendly streets and has a background in grassroots organizing and volunteer management. The Organizing Manager will work closely with members of the DSP team to raise awareness of and support for our vision, mission, and goals and to engage people and organizations to join the movement and take action; to understand and address community needs; and to encourage a cultural shift that embraces car-free and car-lite lifestyles. The Organizing Manager will work to build deeper, authentic relationships with communities around the City, and serve as a bridge between our policy and community engagement work.
Inclusiveness is a core value of the DSP, and with our grassroots organizing we strive to amplify the voices of communities that are often overlooked and disproportionately negatively impacted, such as communities of color and low-income communities, because many of the services, from fast and frequent transit to bike share and sidewalks, favor some over others; many of the problems from air pollution to traffic deaths impact some more than others; and many of the transportation funding mechanisms including fees and sales taxes burden some more than others.
The ideal candidate for this position is self-motivated, committed to equitable community engagement, and enjoys variety in their day-to-day work. As part of the DSP team you’ll have the opportunity to work with community leaders, government agencies, and DSP steering committee member organizations.
The salary range for this position is $45,000-50,000. This application window closes on Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. We will begin reviewing candidates on Monday, January 17, 2022.

The Neighborhood Projects Coordinator is a full-time position for someone who is passionate about reclaiming Denver’s streets for people walking, rolling, biking, and taking transit, and who has a background in urban planning or a similar field. The DSP’s citywide policy advocacy is informed by neighborhood-focused projects that help ensure the policies we are advocating for directly address the needs and desires of Denver residents. In particular, we prioritize neighborhoods located along Denver’s Vision Zero High Injury Network (the 5% of streets where 50% of traffic fatalities occur) and Equity Index Areas (areas with high concentrations of low-income households and other vulnerable populations). Through our support for community-led initiatives, we help residents to assess transportation challenges and opportunities within their own neighborhoods, work in teams to identify solutions, plan and implement neighborhood projects, amplify their voices to the local media and decision-makers, and build their capacity to continue playing a leadership role on active transportation and safe streets issues.
Our neighborhood-focused work also includes data collection and analysis, educational activities, celebratory events, participation in government-led planning initiatives and projects, and facilitation of meaningful community engagement in public processes. The Neighborhood Projects Coordinator will support this neighborhood-focused work by providing technical assistance to DSP staff, community partners, and residents. The ideal candidate is self-motivated, committed to creating an equitable and vibrant Denver, and enjoys variety in their day-to-day work.
The salary range for this position is $37,800-$42,800. This application window closes on Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. We will begin reviewing candidates on Monday, January 17, 2022.
