Support Bike Jeffco!

2016 was another successful year for Bike Jeffco’s advocacy efforts. The 2.4 mile El Rancho -Genesee bikeway was (finally) opened after 12 years of our lobbying. A Jeffco Regional Bikeways Wayfinding Guide was published which will ensure that we will have standardized signage for cycling throughout the County. We continue to advocate successfully for improvements to unsafe routes and the creation missing links.

We are hoping for even greater success in 2017. We want to see more shoulders on mountain roads, better commute routes to rail lines and the development of a true bicycle network. We also plan to support the re-instated Tour of Colorado professional bike race in August.

To do this, our all volunteer organization needs your financial support. Please consider making a tax deductible donation of $25, $50 or even $100 to Bike Jeffco by clicking the DONATE button to the right of this posting.

Participants then rode to the El Rancho brewery where Team Evergreen and Bike Jeffco threw a celebratory party. Each participant received a T-short marking the event. Bicycle Outfitters provided swag and Wheat Ridge Cyclery donated a large number of gift cards as raffle prizes.
A good time was had by all.
