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

logo: Vision ZeroMake your voice heard about concerns about traffic safety in Denver — and tell us what's working to help keep you safe! As part of Denver's Vision Zero initiative, the city has created an interactive online tool that allows residents and commuters to share their feedback about transportation safety.

Take the survey at denvergov.org/visionzero — select the location of your feedback, and add it to the map before April 30, 2017.

 

The Denver Bike Map has been updated for 2017 — including our most recent projects and those currently underway, as well as helpful tips for using enhanced bikeways, taking your bike on transit, and staying safe on our streets and trails. 

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!
