Bicycle Colorado’s mission is to lead a passionate and growing movement that champions the interests of everyone who rides or wants to ride a bicycle in Colorado.
What: Bicycle Safety Course
When: Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 6:15-7:45 p.m.
Where: City of Boulder New Britain Building –
First Floor Conference Room

This is the first time the class is being offered to the public in Boulder. The same event has been offered in Fort Collins and received positive reviews for the material presented and its balanced information for both motorists and cyclists. Attendees will learn about:
- Common causes of bike/motor vehicle crashes and how to avoid them.
- Laws and responsibilities for both travelers.
- How to navigate on-street bicycle infrastructure.
- Why sharing the road is the safest option for everyone.
