We are a local bicycle advocacy group in Douglas County, Colorado.  Bicycle Douglas County was founded in 2003 when concerned bicyclists came together to advocate to retain shoulders in Highlands Ranch.  Today we have members from every part of Douglas County concerned with road- and mountain-biking facilities and safety.  Bicycle Douglas County is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization working for bicyclists throughout Douglas County. 

Bicycle Douglas County is working to:
  • Improve and expand trails and roadways for safe bicycling throughout Douglas County
  • Build awareness and a positive relationship with local and county officials
  • Organize Douglas County bicyclists and create an e-mail communications network to share important information about planning efforts, improvements, and how you can have a positive impact on bicycling in our beautiful county
