Our mission is to lead a passionate and growing movement that champions the interests of everyone who rides or wants to ride a bicycle in our state.
We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by all people in our state.
Bicycle Colorado is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Denver. Our mission is to lead a passionate and growing movement that champions the interests of everyone who rides or wants to ride a bicycle in our state.
For 30 years, we've used advocacy, education and passion to make Colorado one of the most bicycle-friendly states in the nation. We encourage and promote bicycling, increase safety, improve conditions and provide a voice for people who ride bicycles in Colorado. With the support of our members and numerous partnerships across the public and private sector, we've made significant strides in improving bicycling since 1992.
"I love and support Bicycle Colorado because they walk the walk. They strive to get us all on bikes and to make it safe and feasible for us to do so. I am one less car on the road when I ride. Bicycle Colorado continually renews my enthusiasm to be an advocate for riding bikes!"
- Kati Olivaras
"My family and I have been longtime supporters of Bicycle Colorado because of its commitment to everything related to cycling in our bike-crazed state. My husband and I also have a 4-year-old that rides all over our local trails and roads. We have a huge appreciation for what BC does not only for my family and friends, but everyone that rides a bike in Colorado."
- Alex, Greg and Emmett Frozley

- Janet Slate
"I believe strongly that if more people ride bikes in comfort, many will adopt them as active transportation. I support Bicycle Colorado because they are dedicated to providing safe routes to school for our children and safe, convenient routes to work and exercise for adults through their work with our state and local governments."
- Andy Pruitt
"Bicycle Colorado stands for all the things an avid cyclist like me wants to see in a bicycle friendly community: Safe Routes to School, 3 Feet to Pass and protected bike lanes. That's why I am a proud member and volunteer."
