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.

Denver Public Works is evaluating the parking-protected bikeways along Lawrence and Arapahoe streets, as well as related facilities and safety enhancements in the downtown area. Your feedback will help us determine how the current designs are working and what we can do in the future.

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.
