BICYCLING IN DENVER



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.

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:

  • Broadway South Segment: Detailed design of construction-ready plans from 7th Avenue at the Cherry Creek Trail south to the I-25 Broadway Station.
    The voter-approved Elevate Denver Bond Program invests $12 million toward the construction of Denver Moves: Broadway’s South Segment.
  • Broadway North Segment: Conceptual design from 7th Avenue north to 16th Avenue.

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!

The City and County of Denver is designing bicycle and safety improvements along Syracuse Street and Roslyn Street between 8th Ave. and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Public input during a multi-year study process helped form the final planned improvements.
