The 2017 Bicycle Master Plan is designed to make Arvada a place where bicycling is a safe, convenient, and efficient option for every trip and was approved by City Council in October 2017. The plan is 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.
