  • Beer for members. Discount memberships available.
  • Tickets $5 member, $10 non-members, kids under 12 free

Do you live a car-free or car-lite life? Tell us about it! Do you haul a motherload on a cargo bike? Do you ferry your kids around town? Do you shop by bike? Does your e-bike let you drive less? Read more.

Keep riding!

Final Chance to Impact Transportation Master Plan and Pedestrian Plan


The Transportation Master Plan (TMP) is the guiding policy document for the City of Boulder's transportation system and won’t be updated for another 5 years. The Pedestrian Plan is the community's long-range vision for the future of all things pedestrian in Boulder and lays out how to achieve this vision through specific policies and actions.

With several grant-funded programs this year, Community Cycles staff, along with board members and friends, are doing a lot of bicycle care education around town. It’s our joy to see kids getting back on their newly-repaired bikes, with some new skills to keep their bikes rolling.

Kids’ Summer Bike Camp


Thanks to all of our campers, parents of campers, instructors, and ride volunteers!  We had a great week of riding bikes, learning about bike mechanics, and learning to find our way on Boulder’s beautiful network of bike paths. 

One parent told us: "I’m amazed at how confident my kids are on their bicycles now, after just one week. They can ride so far, and they even showed me how to change my flat tire!  We’ve gone bicycling as a family and look forward to many more rides this summer, and plan to ride to school all fall!"
“Ride” room gets a facelift!

Volunteers now have a place to put their stuff while working a shift at CC. This calendar also lists current workshops for the month.
New volunteer shifts are open on Mondays and Wednesdays to help build bikes for sale. Every year CU students arrive and wipe out our current inventory. This year we are determined NOT to run out of bikes as sales of these bikes go back to programs that make CC great. Please help us refurbish bikes to our high standards through the end of August. Our mission: build Safe and Reliable transportation at an affordable price. We truly believe that, and with help from our community (you!), we can "Frankenstein" together some really cool bikes. Click here to get started.

The Students are pretty much here! Refurbished bikes to slim down dramatically. Show up early to get your bikes while you still can!!!
