June is Walk and Bike Month

June is Walk and Bike Month in Boulder, with great events and many reasons to get outside, take a walk, ride a bike and celebrate healthy, active living. Community Cycles is here to help you with all of your bicycle maintenance and commuter needs to keep you rolling.

Renew your membership or join us at our Annual Member Party, June 22, 6 - 9 p.m. at our new shop: 2601 Spruce St, Unit B. Our party is a time to celebrate you for your support as we work together to make Boulder a better, more bike-friendly and walkable city. Join us for bike games, including a return of the famous Egg-less Relay, plus a Pie Joust, silent auction, chill music, food, wine, beer and good fun!

13th Street GreenStreet

This will be the first GreenStreet in Boulder, a low-traffic street prioritized for walking and biking. The 13th Street project is meant to be a quick and inexpensive project, the type of project that CC supports. More info here.

Support GreenStreets with 20 mph travel speeds and low traffic counts that prioritize people riding bikes and walking.  Read more.

North Broadway reconstruction project (Violet-US36)

The city is planning a reconstruction project for North Broadway, which is part of the proposed Low Stress Network. However, primarily due to financial constraints of right of way, this is not part of the city’s recommended proposal. The purpose of the Low Stress Network is to repurpose space for protected bike lanes, lower the speed limit to 25 mph, reduce speeds through traffic calming, plus mark all legal crosswalks.
More info and comments can be given here.
