Bike Jeffco is deeply saddened that our cycling community has been rocked by three shocking car vs. bicycle incidents over the past week: one in Golden, one in Evergreen, and a fatality in Lafayette. On Sunday June 19, two Team Evergreen Cycling members were struck by a car near El Rancho. This is particularly disturbing because the driver may have acted with intent to hit cyclists. We at Bike Jeffco express our sympathy for all of the affected riders and their families.
At Bike Jeffco we commit to making cycling as safe and enjoyable as possible, as does Team Evergreen. Team Evergreen is our most significant supporter through their philanthropic grant program. They do this to help ensure road safety, and we thank them for that commitment. Our goal is always to have every cyclist complete every ride without incident.
Our promise is to continue our work with advocacy groups, governmental entities, law enforcement, bike shops, and clubs to make cycling safer.
