The City of Denver has more than 100 miles of multi-use trails, 130 miles of bike lanes, 39 miles of sharrows, and almost 400 miles of signed bike routes. The city's Bicycle Program, managed primarily by Public Works and Parks and Recreation, supports the city's multi-modal transportation goals with a growing network of innovative infrastructure throughout the city.
Streets and Bike Lanes
On-street bike facilities (bike lanes, sharrows, signed routes) are the responsibility of Denver Public Works.
Denver's bicycle program is in part focused on improving on-street facilities and creating connections between Denver's neighborhoods and destinations:
Trails and Paths
Off-street trails are built and maintained by Denver Parks and Recreation.
Each year, the city plans for new studies and construction projects to continue improving options and amenities for bicycle travel in and around Denver. Denver Public Works follows a Complete Streets Policy, ensuring all plans, manuals, rules and regulations, and programs prioritize safe and convenient access for all users of the transportation network.
