In 2016, Denver Public Works finalized an update to Denver Moves (2011) to plan for enhanced on-street bicycle facilities (e.g., protected bike lanes, neighborhood bikeways) in the downtown area and throughout Denver. This includes:

  • Developing a detailed plan for a network of enhanced on-street bicycle facilities in Downtown Denver, as well as identifying key corridors that link from adjacent neighborhoods to either downtown or off-street trails.

  • Establishing design standards for enhanced on-street bicycle facilities

The purpose of creating this plan is to enhance the citywide bicycle network to be more attractive to cyclists of all abilities (i.e., the 60% who identify themselves as “interested but concerned”). The recommended network of enhanced on-street bicycle facilities incorporates the Denver Moves plan (2011) and complements the existing Denver Moves bicycle facility network.
