June is Colorado Bike Month. The Colorado Department of Transportation’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program is promoting bicycle safety. There are many useful resources on their webpage:
- The Colorado Bicycling Manual: the official rule book for bikes and pedestrians. The manual includes the rules of the road, tips and suggestions for equipment and accessories, and theft prevention.
- Colorado Biking Links
- Colorado Bicycling Maps
- Share the Road video
- Special Tips
- How bikeable is your community?
Information about Bike Month events can be found on the Bike Colorado web site, and Colorado Bike Month posters are available to download for printing at http://www.dot.state.co.us/bikeped/Poster.htm. Materials on biking are also available for lending from the Colorado State Publications Library. Search for “bicycle” in our catalog for a list of titles.
