Bicycle Colorado respects your privacy and takes steps to protect your information. Bicycle Colorado knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and responsibly. This notice describes our privacy policy.

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for Bicycle Colorado (“we”) and our website, https://www.bicyclecolorado.org/. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website, except where stated otherwise.

I. The Information We Collect

  1. Membership and Donations
    Bicycle Colorado only collects information we believe will help make Colorado a more bicycle-friendly state. We do not sell or rent the information we collect with other organizations. We request information from you when you sign up to become a member or donate to Bicycle Colorado. This information is used for billing purposes and is processed and secured by Click & Pledge. You may find the security policy for Click & Pledge here.

    Initiatives & Events
    From time-to-time we may collect information you provide as a part of an initiative or event. Petitions you sign and letters you send through our VoterVoice advocacy tool are collected to reinforce the support for or against important issues.  As such, we may share printed information collected from VoterVoice action items with those we feel can positively impact the outcome of the issue for which we have created this petition, which groups may include, but are not limited to, members of the Colorado State Patrol, Colorado State Legislature, the Governor of Colorado and employees of the State of Colorado and its related departments and agencies.

    Participation in these initiatives or events is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and, therefore, disclose this information.

II. How We Use the Information We Collect

  1. We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information, other than with third party service providers and other bicycle-related organizations on a limited basis.

    Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future about the latest Bicycle Colorado newsletter, initiatives, events, or changes to this privacy policy. If you’d prefer to not receive the Bicycle Colorado newsletter via email, then you may choose to not take any advocacy actions or sign up for our newsletter, though we hope that you will since your support strengthens our advocacy work. Bicycle Colorado’s newsletters via email include information for you to unsubscribe and you may choose to do so at any time.

III. Information Sharing and Disclosure 

  1. Bicycle Colorado does not share your information, other than with third party service providers and other bicycle-related organizations. Third party service providers are other companies and individuals which perform functions and services on our behalf. Examples include but are not limited to hosting our website, providing our email and eNews services, removing repetitive information from our lists, analyzing data, and processing credit card data. These third party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

    If you’d prefer that we do not share your information with other bicycle-related organizations, you may contact us at any time at info@bicyclecolo.org to opt out of such information sharing.

IV. Information Security 

  1. Bicycle Colorado is committed to taking reasonable precautions to protect the personally identifiable information provided to us. We use a secure server to encrypt all of your personal information. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

    Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

V. Your Control Over Information 

  1. If you’d prefer to not receive any mail or emails from Bicycle Colorado, you may contact us at any time at info@bicyclecolo.org to put your information on the Do Not Contact list.

VI. Cookies 

  1. We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

VII. Links to Other Sites

  1. Please be aware that our site may contain links to other sites hosted by third parties. Bicycle Colorado does not control and is thus not responsible for the content or privacy practices and policies of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements or each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.

VIII. Updates and Effective Date

  1. As the Colorado bicycling environment changes, so does our organization, and the terms of our privacy notice may need to change accordingly. Changes to this privacy policy will be posted on this website. Please check the policy periodically for changes. Your continued use of this website following a change to the policy indicates your acceptance of the changes to the policy.  

If you have any suggestions or concerns about privacy at Bicycle Colorado, please contact us at info@bicyclecolorado.org with a thorough description and we will try to resolve it. As always, we thank you for your support of Bicycle Colorado and your support for building a bicycle-friendly Colorado.

The Latest News

Thanks to the War on Cars team for traveling to Denver—please come back any time! #bicyclecolorado
  • 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. We discussed why Colorado communities are investing in bike lanes, how we can educate on the rules of the road and keep everyone safe, the many benefits of bicycling and much more.
