This edition is geared to help you ride out the summer in style and prepare for another great year of biking to school this fall. We have an interesting collec- tion of articles covering Safe Routes to School, new local bike leadership, new bikeways being built, updates from previous editions, and ev- erything in between. As a Denver native, it has been exciting to serve the City during this time of record growth. While there are countless benefits of this influx of people, businesses, and ideas, it has also placed a new level of stress on our transportation network. Building new roads or widening existing roads is expensive and disrupts adjacent homes and businesses, mak- ing these types of improvements rare. But making better use of our existing roads to serve all users is within reach. This is why the City is committed to building a bicycle network connecting homes to parks, schools, jobs, and all the rest of Denver’s community and cultural destinations. 2015 and 2016 have been great years for bicycling in Denver. Mayor Hancock is improving citywide road safety by declaring Denver a Vision Zero city, which is a commitment that aims to eliminate all traffic related injuries and fatalities on Denver’s roads. We saw the opening of the City’s first parking protected bike lanes on Arapahoe and Lawrence streets, installed new on-street bike parking, used the first on-board bike racks on the University of Colorado A Line, and completed many other projects. Change is coming fast and BikeLife Denver aims to help people on bikes of all ages and abilities navigate the City of Denver on two wheels. We hope you enjoy this edition and find the articles both informative and entertain- ing. More people on bikes helps alleviate many of Denver’s growing pains, and also contributes to a greater level of health and quality of life. So when you finish reading, dust off your old ten speed or grab the trusty commuter, and join us in the fun that comes from pedaling a mile high!
