Type: Ciclovia/Car-Free Streets
Bicycling in Denver has made a big leap since 2008. The launch of its own bikeshare program, a doubling in bike lane mileage, and the city’s recognition as a Silver level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists are all signs that Denver is committed to cycling. BikeDenver hopes to build on this momentum – and spur greater investments– with the city’s first ciclovía, Viva Streets, in August 2011. Our grant of $2,500 will fund operational costs for what is hoped to be the first of many car-free streets events in the Mile High City.
