More Accomplishments


In 2017 Community Cycles’ accomplishments included recycling over 2,500 bikes, giving old bikes a new life,  getting 250 people on bikes through our Earn-A-Bike program and teaching over 40 community workshops on subjects like bike commuting, bike maintenance and repair, and safe cycling skills.

Our Annual Kids’ Holiday Bike Giveaway is still going strong! 2017 provided bikes to 400+ needy children. Also for kids in Boulder we hosted a Kids’ Bike Day in May, teaching safe riding skills and repairing bikes for over 100 kids.

Working with local and regional governments, we envisioned, lobbied for and succeeded in having the City and County of Boulder fund a state-of-the-art, secure, bike parking facility at the Boulder Transit Center. We also lobbied CDOT to put in bike lanes on US36 from Lee Hill to Violet to improve safety. Also at City and County levels, we represented bicyclists, working to complete the Boulder bikeway system, to link communities through a regional trail network, and to negotiate cyclist/motorist conflicts.
