 Friday, February 14th is International Winter Bike to Work Day

Mark your calendars and ride to work!


For the past several years, Denver has been one of the top participating cities worldwide- let’s keep it rolling!

For those riding, don’t forget to stop by the breakfast station at 15th & Cleveland from 6:30am-9:00 a.m. for breakfast burritos, coffee, and hot chocolate!

Join the Vision Zero Love-In February 14th

Our annual Valentine’s Day Love In event is back! For the fifth year in a row, we are celebrating our love for safe streets by holding a rally at the City & County building in support of Vision Zero. This year, we’ll be thanking the City for continuing to elevate public transit in Denver through the Denver Moves: Transit plan. Come to hear from city leaders about the importance of public transit in our city. RTD will also be on hand to get input for their Reimagine RTD initiative. Since February 14 is also Winter Bike to Work Day, they will also have their portable bus rack so you can practice loading your bike on an RTD bus!


Meet at 11:30 a.m. at 17th and Lawrence for a group bus ride to City & County Building

Noon: Program starts at City & County Building with valentines, speakers, and bike-loading!

We want YOU at our next coalition meeting!

CALC meets 2nd Wednesdays every other month. Open to all, these meetings include event and project updates, informal networking, and group discussions about active living in Denver.

Discussion Topic: Climate Change in Denver- Opportunities for building Resilience

From Our Partners:

2020 Theme: For the Sake of Gen Z – Shaping the Future of Health

They’re a whole new generation! Digitally savvy, never known a time without smart phones, meme obsessed, insightful, highly concerned about safety, calculated and thoughtful when taking risks and incredibly inclusive. This year we are bringing together Gen Z youth advisors and those who serve them to talk about the future of health. (If you have teens and young adults in your programs, centers, or clinics…that’s you.) We’re going to open the box on e-cigarettes, gaming, memes (maybe create a couple), digital connectedness and social isolation, pressures of social media and getting this generation outside.  Come be part of the conversations.
