BikeDenver's mission is to transform bicycling in Denver. Through advocacy, education and community engagement, we are building a thriving Denver.

We are the leading voice for bicyclists in Denver. We listen to our members and advocate for their needs.

Driven. Provocative. Hopeful. We exist solely for the bicyclists in our city and we need your voice and your support. Donate today to help us make Denver better by making bicycling a bigger and better part of Denver.


I believe our city can transform into a great bike city. I am a member and strong supporter of BikeDenver because I see this organization as having the primary responsibility to advocate for this change, organizing Denver's bicyclists into a political an cultural force for transformation.

Our organization strongly supports BikeDenver and their advocacy for creating an environment in Denver where bicycling is the preferred method of transportation.

I ride to exercise and to commute, but mostly to have fun! I can't thank BikeDenver enough for the work on the bike lanes, sharrows, B-Cycles and all the other ways that bicycling is so much easier in Denver.

Transform bicycling in Denver.

Background Statement

History: BikeDenver was formed in 2001* at a community meeting hosted by Colorado's statewide bicycle advocacy group. A group of Denver-based bicyclists responded to the identified need for a Denver-focused advocacy group to improve conditions and access for bicyclists in the city. The group formed under the name BikeDenver, and became the voice for resident and community needs.

Today: BikeDenver is a grassroots organization representing the needs of Denver-area residents. The organization is made up of representatives from diverse backgrounds and professions all with the desire to promote the individual and community benefits of bicycling, create a better environment for people on bikes, and foster increased ridership.

*BikeDenver was founded in 2001, but was not incorporated as a non-profit until 2005
