  • We had our first trip to the Capitol of the session today, working to get the Senate Judiciary to pass SB 061, the bike lane bill. The bill defines bike lanes in Colorado law and establishes that bicyclists have the right-of-way in a bike lane. It passed today by a vote of 3-2! Now it heads to the Senate floor at a time TBD! The bill is sponsored by Senator Mike Foote and Representative KC Becker (Speaker of the House), and @cyclist_lawyer has been instrumental in bringing it forward! #bicyclecolorado
  • #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.
