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.
