We ride on stolen land

At Bicycle Colorado, we know we must not only talk about the future but acknowledge the past. That is why we reserve space to recognize and honor the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute Nations, who were the original occupants and custodians of the land where we do our work for centuries before genocide and ethnic cleansing led by white settlers. We’re grateful to these communities, their living descendants in Colorado and descendants of those forcefully relocated here for their wisdom and resilience in both the past and present. 

 

Everyone travels and recreates on stolen lands. It’s critical we keep in mind the connections between recreation and transportation and these American Indian communities. Many of us choose how we get around and the impact we have on the land. Many of us also make decisions on transportation systems and how land is used that further influence our community’s footprint. And while our work often discusses freedom of mobility, we must also acknowledge the right for people to stay in place that was taken from American Indians by colonizers. 

 

Thank you for honoring these people and their land with us.

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! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • 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!
