Bicycling in Denver

With bicycling increasing in Denver, Public Works is always making improvements to bicycling infrastructure, such as bike lanes, sharrows, and now the 15th Street Bikeway. For more details on our latest progress, visit our infrastructure projects page.

For more details on what we have done and what we plan to do, please
see an update on where we are in implementing Denver Moves, the bicycle network plan.

The newest bike lanes to the growing bicycle infrastructure system include Globeville, Park Hill, and LoHi. These include:

  • 23rd Ave between Colorado Blvd and Kearney St
  • 26th Ave between Colorado Blvd and Quebec St
  • Central St between 16th and 20th Streets
  • W 45th Ave between S Platte River Trail trailhead and Broadway, with sharrows completing the connection to the future 41st and Fox station

New Bike Signage

Denver Public Works just installed the first bicycle dedicated signage indicating distance, direction and destinations along the D-10 bike route. The signage helps people arrive at their destinations on bike, indicating where the locations are located and how far. Learn more on our projects page.

Bike Corrals Piloted

The South Pearl Street Merchants Association, the Office of Councilman Chris Nevitt, and Denver Public Works are celebrating installation of the city’s first on-street public bike corrals, which replace a single parking spot with space for up to 12 bikes to park. The corrals in front of Black Pearl Restaurant at 1529 South Pearl Street and Stella’s Coffee at 1476 South Pearl Street were installed by the South Pearl Street Merchants Association through a permit provided by Denver Public Works. The bike parking is available anytime --day or night – at no charge. Denver Public Works will use the South Pearl Street bike corrals as a pilot program to explore the viability of on-street bike parking citywide.
