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

On the last block of 14th Street, from Court Place to Colfax Avenue, the bike lane will be buffered, providing additional separation between bikes and vehicular traffic. At Colfax, 14th Street connects to the bike lane on Bannock Street.

The 14th Street bike lane and parking lane on the right side of the street will remain closed while work is underway. 

Anticipated Construction Schedule 

  • July 5–9: Striping operations will begin at 7:00pm Wednesday and continue through Sunday; crews will work during the overnight hours. 
  • July 10–28: Curb installation from 8:30am to 3:30pm; possible lane closures for drivers as installation occurs

As part of the Denver Moves Program, the City and County of Denver is developing new bicycle facilities along Syracuse Street between 8th Ave and 26th Ave and we want your help.
