Denver Public Works is continuing to make improvements to the bicycling infrastructure in Denver and employees are taking notice. Some city buildings have secure bike parking and lockers, some facilities have showers, and there is a discount for city employees to try out B-cycle! It may be time to ditch the ride and pedal yourself to that next meeting or even make it your daily commute.
If you have your own bike, you'll find the city offers its employees monitored bike parking and secure bike lockers (more on that in a minute). You will also find bike repair stations at some locations, and more along your route.
City employees get their first month free when they sign up for the monthly pass ($15 value) or $15 off the annual pass ($95 or $70). Enter DENANN17 in the promotion code section for the Annual Pass and DEN3017 for the Monthly Pass at Join now link.

Employee Parking and Transportation has bicycle parking. All downtown city office buildings have bicycle U-racks located around the perimeter of the buildings and inside several of the parking garages. Bicycles are not permitted inside city buildings and offices. Assigned bicycle locker parking may also be available at most building locations for a fee of $3 a month. Please contact Parking & Mobility Services for more information regarding secure bike lockers.

Some city facilities have locker rooms available.
Employees may sign up for limited use to the Denver Employee Fitness Center at the Webb Building. The cost is $10 per month, and only grants access to the lockers and locker room. This pass is not transferable to any other location. Visit the Denver Employee Fitness Center for more information.
Consider pairing biking with taking transit. The city has a subsidized RTD pass program for employees in limited or unlimited positions. A monthly RTD pass—which includes free bus and light rail rides (including to Denver International Airport)—can be acquired at a cost of $10 in pre-tax monthly deductions. See how you can take your bike with you on the bus in the video below.
