Denver Bike Streets
Discover low-stress bike routes to get anywhere in Denver, Colorado. Mount your phone on your bike, open the Bike Streets app, and explore our city in a way you never knew was possible.
Volunteers from all over Denver helped us identify the streets they love to ride in their neighborhoods. We rode thousands of miles on these streets. And a group of open-source software developers got together and turned the map into an app.
About this release
Don't expect the fancy stuff. Yet. This, the very first version of the Bike Streets app is simple: the low-stress bike map on top of the Denver city map and your GPS beacon. If you want to see the app get better faster, please volunteer with us!
About the Bike Streets Project
We started the Bike Streets Project because we were tired of riding in bike lanes on big, congested city streets with cars whizzing by at 40 MPH.
Neighborhood streets, by contrast, are often delightful, quiet places to be on a bicycle. Theyre places where people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds can comfortably ride. There are a few streets like this on the official Denver Bike Map -- theyre called neighborhood bikeways. We thought, why not expand that concept to the entire city? Lets create a complete network of these types of routes from Westwood to Lowry and from Globeville to Wellshire. And lets do it now so we can ride now.
Low stress, of course, doesnt mean no stress. Cars and other vehicles use these streets, many of which dont have traffic signals. At large intersections or any time you feel uncomfortable, we encourage you to get off your bike and walk on the sidewalk.
If you have suggestions or want to get involved in the project as a volunteer or open-source developer, wed love to hear from you: email@example.com.
