Get Involved with Denver's Bike Program

We want to know what's important to the bicycling community. Here are some ways you can get involved.

Bicycle Friendly Community application

In July 2014, Public Works kicked off the process to renew as a Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) with a visit from Steve Clark from the League of American Bicyclists (the organization that manages the BFC program). Steve shared insight and recommendations to the City and community partners in the day-long visit that included a bike ride, meetings, and a community forum. View the notes from Denver's self evaluation at the community forum, as well as Steve's presentation that he shared with 20+ community members.

After Steve's visit, PW conducted extensive outreach to community bicycle partners. These partners include: BikeDenver, Denver Interneighborhood Cooperative, Denver bicycle shops, Downtown Denver Partnership, Northeast Transportation Connections, Transportation Solutions, Regional Air Quality Council, Bicycle Colorado, eGo Carshare, Denver League Cycling Instructors, Groundwork Denver, Trips for Kids, MBAC, COMBA, Department of Parks & Recreation, Department of Environmental Health, Department of Community Planning & Development, Denver Police Department, Denver Health, RTD, University of Denver, CU Denver, Auraria, Regis University, Denver Cruisers, Denver Bicycle Touring Club, Naked Women's Cycling Club, Major Taylor Cycling Club, Team Evergreen, The Bike Depot, B-cycle, Bicycle Colorado, DRCOG, Denver City Council, Denver Public Schools, and more! 

In November 2014, PW hosted a BFC charette; view the agenda from the charette. Responses to the community questions were recorded on post-it notes, that were then transcribed into the application. The photo below shows the many community partners that participated.

On February 11, 2015, Public Works submitted the final application on behalf of all of the community members and partners that make Denver an outstanding bicycle friendly community. View the application submittals:

Thank you to everyone that participated in the renewal of our designation as a BFC.
