Your Friendly Neighborhood Bike Rides

In the months of April through October, we are co-hosting bike rides in Denver's Sun Valley neighborhood for young people and families with our friends at the Sun Valley Kitchen and Sun Valley Youth Center.

Residents: This page will be updated with any date changes, weather contingency plans, or other information that you need to know before riding. It's a good idea to check in before rides or speak with a neighborhood organizer!

Community Partners & Volunteers: If you'd like to get involved on community rides, we are looking for people to assist with pre-ride preparations (such as pumping up tires, fitting helmets, and performing safety checks) and riding along with us to keep the group safe. Email to explore collaboration!


Note: You must fill the waiver to be officially registered.
