Youll learn about Denvers Safe Routes to Schools program Auraria Campus effort to encourage more bicycling how Denverites of all ages can earn a bike through volunteer service and much more. When many of us were young we walked or biked everywhere. Even if these trips were down the street they were full of exploration adventure and independence. I remember growing up in Denver and biking around the neighborhood to City Park for soccer practice and coasting down 16th Avenue to my familys business on East Colfax. I loved biking and still do. While I dont ride as much as Id like even short trips to meetings via B-cycle remind me of those days and take the edge off of a busy day. The City of Denver is committed to building a bicycle network that connects homes to parks to schools to our vibrant downtown and to so many other Denver destinations. Denver is working to build a network of streets and bike facilities that are comfortable for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Keep turning to read about Denvers planned Protected Bike Lane and Neighborhood Bikeway projects the mountain trail systems that Denver Parks and Recreation is build- ing and the statewide bicycle trails that are also being built. We encourage you to learn more about the bicycling events projects and activities that are happening in Denver and take action as we all work together towards a more bicycle-friendly Denver.

Denver Schools Biking Walking A cross the nation schools communities local governments and advocacy groups are coming together through Safe Routes to School SRTS to encourage students teachers faculty staff and families to leave their cars at home and walk and bike to school. The benefits are simple improved health through physical activity reduced neighborhood congestion increased safety along school routes and improved air quality. Everyone wins and has fun doing it. THE FIVE ES Denvers program focuses on Education Encouragement Enforcement Engi- neering and Evaluation. With creative advocacy programming to support the five Es includes fun and interactive events such as bicycle rodeos Bike to School Day held each May Walk to School Day Oct. 7 2015 and Walking and Wheeling Week. Throughout the year students learn about bike and helmet fit and the A-B-Cs air brakes and chain of bike maintenance. For families who live too far to bike or walk to school a remote drop off pro- gram bridges the gap. While some programs include a website where groups can post meeting times and locations typically the program starts with a few families who meet regularly to walk or bike together from a central park or other location. PARTNERS GO THE FINAL MILE Thanks to Denvers SRTS coordinator who has worked with partner agencies 36 bike racks were installed at seven DPS schools and Revision International in the Westwood neighborhood provided one elementary school with helmets for students.

With the 2011 addition of Denvers Volunteer Courtesy Patrol VCP the city hopes to achieve platinum designation. With more than 100 en- ergetic volunteers the VCP actively provides education mechanical and medical assistance to area cyclists. The VCP was launched by Denver Parks and Recreations Ranger Program in partnership with BikeDenver. Frequently called upon to help stranded cyclists vol- unteer patrollers who are easily recognized in their bright green Primal jerseys are prepared to help. They are equipped with maps inner tubes patch kits tools Clif Bars and first aid kits. While cuts and bruises are the typical injury patrollers have been called upon to as- sist with more serious incidents. The patrols cover some of the citys most visited areas including Sloans Lake Cherry Creek South Platte River High Line Canal and Bear Creek trails as well as Washington City and Chees- man parks. Two new programs are expected to launch a Denver Mountain Parks sister program focusing on mountain bikers and a walking program to provide friendly on-foot patrols in mountain and urban parks. Volunteers are always needed. Recruitment begins in March and training occurs in April.

While this is not a requirement it just makes good sense. If you stop on a trailpath pull off completely and let others pass. Look before yielding into trail entrances. These are prime locations for accidents. The Denver trails and path speed limit is 15 mph. Always stay to the right. Pass on the left only after getting attention of those in front of you. If you have a cell phone keep it with you. For non-emergency issues call 3-1-1 to contact a Denver Park Ranger.

The City and County of Denver and the Colorado Department of Transportation are partnering to build the final missing link of this route. This 10-foot wide multi-use path will be on the north side of the high- way between Mt. Vernon Drive and Evergreen Parkway. Cyclists will bypass two miles of I-70 and will no longer need to ride on the highway shoulder. CYCLISTS WILL TAKE IN SCENIC VISTAS AND HISTORIC LANDMARKS Traversing between Genesee Park and CDOT right-of-way the path will meander through old growth Ponderosa Pine forest and grassland pasture. Sections of old State Highway 40 are incorporated into the design and a pedestrian bridge will be constructed over the bison herd culvert-crossing. The bison fence will be relocated in several locations to give trail users an upclose view of the historic bison herd. Other scenic features along the pathway will include a new viewing overlook off of Stapleton Drive and the historic Chief Hosa Shelter. FAMILY-FRIENDLY MOUNTAIN BIKING For mountain bikers the city has added five miles of natural surface multi- use trails in Genesee Park. Park and Recreation planners followed existing contours to create a trail with moderate and sustainable grades around Genesee Mountain. This is a family-friendly trail that can be enjoyed by cyclists of all abilities. Side trips to the Chief Hosa Lodge and the Patrick House provide a glimpse into early Denver Mountain Park history. GeneseePark is part of Denvers Mountain Park system a comprehensive system of 22 accessible mountain parks and 24 conservation areas that total more than 14000 acres in Clear Creek Douglas Grand and Jefferson Counties. Purchased in 1912 Genesee Park was Denvers first mountain park and at 2413 acres it is the largest park in the system. Prior to the construction of State Highway 40 and I-70 it took about a half a day to get from Denver to Genesee Park. Today hardcore cyclists make it there in two hours and motorists make the drive in only 20 minutes.

When nearly 30 percent of this population chooses to drive alone the entire city feels the impact. These 15000 trips increase road congestion air pollution and stress. To address these issues create a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists and to reduce drive-alone trips to campus BikeDenvers Ride on Auraria was born. Partnering with local coffee shops like Metropolis Huck- leberry and Denver Bicycle Caf to organize pop-up cof- fee stops commute experts talked with commuters about travel options. The campus celebrated National Bike to School Day with MarleyCoffeeSalvagettiBikeShopAurariaCampusPolice MyWayToGo and Auraria Higher Education Center AHEC together providing free coffee bike tune-ups and assistance with finding the best transportation routes. Building on the campaigns success Ride On Auraria is partnering with facilities AHECs Sustainable Campus Program SCP and CCD students. The combination of new covered and secure bike parking and the re-design of 11th Street by CCD stu- dents will connect existing campus bike lanes and make campus more bike- and pedestrian-friendly.

Streets are being enhanced to offer a more pleasant experience that will encourage more people to ride. Protected bike lanes and neighborhood bikeways are two innovative techniques that will help create a transportation en- vironment that prioritizes bicyclists and pedestrians. Denver Public Works Urban Mobility Manager Emily Snyder explains These facilities are designed to fit the character and demands of streets and in- tersections. There is no one-size-fits-all model. Traffic calming enhanced inter- section crossings and wayfinding signage will help to create a safer environment for all modes. By the end of 2015 the city will install protected bike lanes and intersection treatments on both Lawrence and Arapahoe Streets. The Knox Court neighborhood bike- way design will be completed and construc- tion is expected to begin in 2016. Conceptual designs for three neighborhood bikeways will lead to final designs in 2016 for E. 12th Avenue Garfield Street and W. 35th Avenue. Finally the city is initiating a study on enhanced bicycle facilities for the South BroadwayLincoln corridors. Phase one will focus on existing conditions and analyzing the tradeoffs of adding a bikeway along the corridor. In the second phase the preferred option will be designed and implemented. To keep you up-to-date the city will create a website DenverMovesBroadway.com Stay tuned to denvergov.orgbikeprogram for updates on these and other projects.

BETTERBICYCLING AHEAD FORCOLORADO Working to create a seamless network of bike paths across the state By AVERY STONICH Governor Hickenloopers vision includes both paved and dirt trails connecting across Colorado. Credit Avery Stonich 26 BikeLife Denver BikeLife Boulder 3 Now you can bust out the future-vi- sion goggles and taste the day when you can ride from one end of the state to another on a continuous system of trails. Earlier this year Governor Hick- enlooper catapulted bicycling up on his priority list in his State of the State address directing his administration to map a plan for better trail connectivity throughout the state and naming Ken Gart as volunteer bike czar. Aaron Serna a policy advisor for Gov- ernor Hickenlooper says this sends a strong message. We set ourselves up to let the state know and let stakehold- ers know that this is important to us and were working on it. This is a big deal. Political support or lack thereofis the number one bar- rier to major progress in bicycle riding and facilities according to Tim Blu- menthal president of PeopleForBikes a national movement to make bicycling better. It boils down to leadership. I have a lot of confidence in Hickenloop- er. He really gets it says Blumenthal. Hickenlooper was wise to select Gart whose impressive resume and Rolo- dex make him perfect for the job. Gart started a chain of ski and bike shops in Colorado has lobbied on behalf of bicycling for years helped bring bike sharing to Denver and played a major role in luring the USA Pro Challenge cycling race to the state. The governor knows that Gart is the kind of guy who can get stuff done. He Hickenlooper was strong and specific in his goals says Gart. I am pleased with how committed he is. He will be pushing me. Gart is now knee-deep in the gover- nors Colorado Pedals Project which has two main goals to create a seam- less network of bike paths across the state and help Coloradans live health- ier lives. The two go hand in hand. In fact Colorado wants to be not only the best state for bicycling but also the healthiest state and Hickenloopers health policy agenda names cycling as a way to beat down rising obesity levels. The health benefits are tough to de- bate but bicycling also delivers a slew of other perks that are great for all Col- oradans not just cyclists. Having great places to ride leads to a higher quality of life helps attract talented workers boosts property values brings in tour- ism dollars and creates jobs. In 2000 the Colorado Department of Transportation commissioned a study that found that bicycling contributed 1 billion annually to the state from manufacturing retail tourism and bike races. The number is likely much high- ABOVE Construction is underway on a new stretch of the Peaks to Plains Trail that will enable bicyclists to pedal through Clear Creek Canyon.

In an ideal world you can roll on a bike path all the way from your house to work and your knobby tires can hit tacky dirt just a mile from your back door. But what happens when the route youre riding morphs into something to fearlike a gnarly section of city streets or a gap in the path system that dumps you onto a dangerous road Then your rose-colored glasses might dim. H 28 BikeLife Denver er now. That was 15 years ago before the USA Pro Challenge which in 2014 brought an estimated 130 million in economic impact to the state. Hickenlooper recognizes that if Denver and Colorado become better for bicycling everyone will benefit says Blumenthal. Andy Clarke recent past president of the League of American Bicyclists says the influence of Colorado will spill over into other states. The League keeps close tabs on what states do for bicy- cling with its Bicycle Friendly State program which ranks all 50 states an- nually on how bikeable they are. When the first rankings came out in 2008 Colorado was lodged in the middle of the pack at 22. Within five years the state clawed its way up to 2 before slipping to 6 last year. Competition is an excellent motiva- tor for Governor Hickenlooper who is eyeing 1 Washington and scheming how to nip at the leaders heels. He wants to be the best state and theres a ranking and were going after it says Serna. One of Colorados strengths is having a very effective state bicycle advocacy organization Bicycle Colorado which is working closely with Gart. Executive Director Dan Grunig is hopeful that the governors commitment will speed progress. I think the biggest value the governor brings is hes helping elevate the awareness of bicycling and the value it brings. Hes giving us a way to amplify and accelerate these improve- ments to our system says Grunig. Projects already in the works help demonstrate how the pie in the sky can be brought to the table. A bike path along U.S. 36 will soon connect Boulder and Denver. And in Jefferson County west of Denver the open space department has cobbled together a broad team of partners to fill in a missing link in a bike path system that will connect Denver to the mountains. The Plains to Peaks Trail project is constructing 6 miles of multi-use path along Highway 6 in Clear Creek Canyon where bikes have been prohibited due to safety concerns. Tom Hoby director of Jefferson County Open Space has been working on the project for 10 years and cant wait to complete the connection. Once we get through the canyon people from the Denver Metro Area could ride all the way to Loveland Pass. And then its just a short distance to the Summit County system which connects all the way to Glenwood he says. Hoby hopes the governors initiative puts emphasis on work like this and helps with fund- ing to complete these links. Finding money to bring Garts vision to life will undoubtedly be challenging. The Colorado Department of Trans- portation will be on the hook but cant do it all. Another promising partner is Great Outdoors Colorado GOCO the nonprofit organization tasked with in- vesting Colorado lottery proceeds to help preserve and enhance the states parks trails and open spaces. GOCO kicked in 4.6 million for the Plains to Peaks Trail. Gart doesnt seem too worried. I met with the state yesterdaywe have an ongoing commitment from the gov- ernors office. We have met with foun- dations and other entities within the state. Im confident well have the fund- ing that we need he says. Success will also hinge on people on the ground pitching in to help make things happen. Its important for cy- clists in Colorado to be involved and cap- italize on this opportunity says Grunig.

BikeLife Denver 29 30 BikeLife Denver Be SeenFinding the right bike light THE BEST-LIT BIKE is one with front a white LED and rear lights a red blinkie for best visibility to drivers and pe- destrians. If youre riding on roads with street lights lower- to medium-output bike lights work well. But if youre riding on dark streets or trails you should go for higher output or lumens. WHAT ARE LUMENS A lumen is a measure of the to- tal amount of light emitted by a source. The higher the lu- mens the brighter the light and also the higher the price. But when it comes to staying safe paying for the best light that you can afford is wise. Lumens are typically listed in a product name such as Volt 300 300 lumens or Blaze 180 180 lumens. RECHARGEABLE LIGHTS are the best way to go. They can be charged hundreds of times making them a more eco- nomical and environmentally sound alternative to disposable batteries. Unlike battery-powered lights that dim slowly over the battery life most rechargeable lights deliver a consistent beam until their power is exhausted and have a low-battery warning so you know when its time to plug in. WHEN CHARGING BATTERIES be sure to fully charge them. Because inactive batteries lose their charge over time plug in and charge your system before every use just in case. YOUR LIGHTS BATTERY LIFE will depend on what settings you use. The higher steady setting is the brightest beam but also has a shorter total run time compared to flash- ing modes which use less battery power. Most rechargeable lights have multiple settings so you can switch between them depending on what you need when riding. A HEADLIGHT IS TYPICALLY MOUNTED on the han- dlebar but some lights come with an option to mount on your helmet. Red rear safety lights can be mounted on the seat post or a backpack or pannier depending on what mount accessory they come with. Some can also be attached on a rear bike rack. T he long days of summer are winding down bringing cooler temps and less daylight which means its time for lights on your bike for riding in the early morning or after dark.

Evolveasp.com or 303-942-1379 34 BikeLife Denver Life on the Road with the IMBA Trail Care Crew E veryday it happens like clock- work I meet another rider on the trail or am just pumping gas and I get asked So where do you live I still stumble over the answer which usually ends up being On the road or In that there Subaru. Before I can explain I am interrupt- ed with But where do you really live Depending on the day I usually just give an answer that people are expecting to hear which is to pick one place a defini- tive home base that I go back to. I either tell them Idaho where I lived one year ago or Colorado where I grew up. But the truth is my boyfriend Jordan Carr and I live out of a brightly colored hard-to-miss Subaru Outback flashing the IMBA logo complete with two Trek bikes on the back and a Yakima roof box bursting with dirty riding gear and trail building tools. We travel the country working to share our passion for moun- tain biking and trail-based recreation as members of the Subaru-IMBA Trail Care Crew. We visit a different community each and every weekend to educate the local mountain bikers and trail users on sustainable trail development. We col- laborate with land managers to find the balance between their agency goals and providing quality recreational opportu- nities to benefit both locals and visitors. We discuss the health and economic ben- efits with community officials in hopes of getting them excited about trails. Every weekend whether its in Brook- ings South Dakota or Ithaca New York or Moab Utah we are welcomed into the community by enthusiastic mountain bik- ers eager to improve access to trails and the experience of those trails. I accepted this job dreaming of all the different trails I would ride and never adequately an- ticipated the impact these communities would have on me. In each place we vis- it passionate individuals have mobilized into tight-knit communitiesindividuals who may have never crossed paths oth- erwise. It is a passion for the sport of mountain biking and a passion to build and have high-quality trail experiences that bond these individuals. Regardless of anyones profession background or even their riding ability level bikes break barriers that would otherwise inhibit relationships. Riding bikes provides a platform for friend- ships to develop and most of all for a community of likeminded individuals to flourish. As the Subaru-IMBA Trail Care Crew my boyfriend and I take bits and pieces from each visit and share them with the next weaving together a stronger bigger and more inclusive com- munity of mountain bikers. And while nothing puts a smile on my face quicker than a rowdy rocky trail or a fast flowy section that rips through aspen groves it is the close but diverse communities of trail lovers that make me want to set- tle down and find my placeto have my own community that I can be a part of. I am indeed one of the millennial gen- eration who is deliberately choosing to lead a different life than the stereotyp- ically mapped-out path of my parents generation the baby boomers. The majority of folks I get to work with are Boomers and the idea of not having a home is foreign to most of them. While I sometimes agree with the person who wants to hear Ketchum Idaho in re- sponse to their question about where I live the IMBAru is my place for now and allows me to get a taste of communi- ties all over the country.
