Bicycle Trends and Conditions in Downtown Denver
On the week of Colorado’s “Bike to Work Day,” The Downtown Denver Partnership released a report about the bicycle trends and conditions in Downtown Denver. The full report can be found here on the DDP website.
Downtown Denver has seen an increase in bicycle facilities and an increase in bicyclists over the past few years. Downtown Denver’s bicycle infrastructure includes cycletracks, sharrows, bicycle lanes, a buffered bicycle lane, a cycletrack, bicycle trails, a bicycle box and a bicycle traffic signal.
Most encouragingly, the bicycle mode share for Downtown Denver employees is 6.3%, compared to the 2.2% mode share for the City and County of Denver. Bicycle counts also reveal growth in cycling over the last three years, as shown in the graph below.
