Denver is reinventing its roadways to move more people, more safely and efficiently through the city, and is working to complete networks that offer people more options to get around town in the ways that meet their day-to-day needs. As part of this effort, Denver is accelerating implementation of its Denver Moves: Bikes plan.
With an additional $18M in funding from the Elevate Denver Bond approved by voters in 2017, the city will be installing 125 miles of new bikeways over the next five years, increasing the number of households within a 5-minute ride of a high-comfort bike facility from 38 to 75 percent.
With passage of the bond, the people of Denver overwhelmingly said ‘yes’ to supporting more mobility options for people to choose from to move about our city, and we are primed and ready to get moving on delivering more high comfort bikeways citywide.
In summer 2019, Denver Public Works is placing bicycle counting tubes across bikeways in and around downtown Denver to count each person that crosses, to give our department a better picture of how many people are using bikes to get around the downtown area.
The goal is to use data collected this year as a baseline, and to repeat the study each year in the same locations so we can identify trends and changes in ridership. With this information, we'll be able to quantify how investments in new and upgraded bikeways change how people travel by bicycle and help us expand our bike network across the city.
Denver Public Works began planning in 2016 for bikeway and other improvements on Syracuse Street and Roslyn Street between E. 8th Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard. With support from the public and stakeholders, improvements are planned for installation summer 2019.
The Denver Bike Map has been updated for 2019 — including citywide bike infrastructure, regional trail connections, transit stop locations, bike share and bike repair stations to help plan your next ride.
The online map is now available; printed copies will be available for free at Denver recreation centers, city council offices, and bike shops. Get a bike map today and get riding!
In April and May, Denver Public Works held several meetings about new high comfort bikeways coming to Denver neighborhoods in 2020. These enhance bike facilities improve the safety and comfort of people on bikes and vehicle drivers as well.

Since 2015, Denver Public Works has been studying Broadway to make the corridor safer for bicyclists, drivers, pedestrians and transit riders.
In 2019, after extensive community input and technical planning, the City is designing a more multi-modal Broadway:
