Arvada is already a silver-level Bicycle Friendly Community, but we’re not stopping there! We’ve responded to your requests to make Arvada an even better place to ride! At the October 16, 2017 City Council meeting, Council approved and ratified the 2017 Bicycle Master Plan which will make Arvada a place where bicycling is a safe, convenient, and efficient option for every trip.
The plan is be based around an idea called “Level of Traffic Stress.” It’s pretty simple-- we know that people will want to ride more in places that feel comfortable and safe, as long as they don’t have to go too far out of their way. Think about the kind of place you would feel comfortable riding with your kids--The idea is to connect as many of those spaces as possible. Although there will still be areas requiring improvements, we will work to bridge those gaps wherever we can.
