Bicycle and Pedestrian Program
The State of Colorado recognizes the benefits of walking and bicycling and highly recommends their use for commuting to work, to run errands, and for recreation. Many short trips taken by car can be pleasantly done by walking or bicycling and longer trips can be combined with other alternative modes such as bus or light rail.
Bicycling and walking provide many benefits such as improved health, less stress, and reductions in air pollution, traffic congestion and energy consumption. In addition, walking is free, bicycles are affordable and inexpensive to maintain, and riding a bicycle or walking is a lot more fun than sitting in traffic on a congested roadway.
