Bicycling and walking are important means of travel for thousands of people in the Denver region each day. That's why DRCOG works to provide well-designed, strategically located bicycle and pedestrian facilities for increased and safer access. The benefits of providing bicycle and pedestrian facilities include:

  • Enhancing personal mobility options for people of all ages and incomes,
  • Reducing motor vehicle travel, travel costs, fuel consumption and air pollution, and
  • Improving overall health with increased physical activity​
