Denver Moves Bicycle Network
Denver, Colorado constructed 100 miles of new bikeways, tripling the pace of its planned network of interconnected, low-stress bikeways. In 2022, nearly 50 new miles of community-based networks are scheduled for implementation.
" The reality is we’re ushering in the bicycle revolution in Denver, Colorado. I grew up in the city. We didn’t have bike lanes. We rode our little Huffys without bike lanes, protected or striped. And today we get a chance to see a city committing to creating comfort lanes for people to ride their bikes.”"
Michael Hancock, Mayor
City of Denver
