Bicycling in Denver

Denver is committed to creating a bicycling network where every household is within a quarter mile (2-minute bike ride) of a comfortable and low-stress bicycle facility. In order to achieve this multi-modal transportation goal, Public Works is continually making improvements to bicycling infrastructure in Denver. This work includes installing bike parking, bike lanes, signage and bicycle detection.

News & Updates

In September 2015, Denver Public Works launched the Denver Moves Broadway study to explore options for making Broadway/Lincoln a safer and more vibrant place for all travelers between Colfax and I-25.

New bike signal at 16th and Broadway intersectionJune 2016 Updates

  • Multimodal improvements around Broadway and 16th Avenue will make this busy intersection safer for pedestrians and people on bikes. The enhancements include upgraded traffic signals and a bike signal, new striping and ADA ramps, and a dedicated bike lane and elevated bike path on the north side of 16th Ave. between Lincoln and Broadway. With the "green wave" signal timing implemented earlier this year from Park to Broadway, 16th Avenue is a great way for bicyclists to get to downtown Denver!
  • Bike lanes on W 29th Ave are being installed in coordination with repaving of the roadways; see the latest updates on this year's projects
  • Planning is underway for a parking-protected bike lane on 14th Street in downtown Denver

Denver Public Works has finalized an update to the Denver Moves plan with a goal of enhancing the city-wide bicycle network to be more attractive to cyclists of all abilities. 

Summer is a busy season for events in the downtown Denver area! Be aware of road and lane closures during major events, and see the recommended bicycle detours during event-related closures.
