How to Bike Safely in Colorado

Every year over 700,000 Colorado visitors have bicycling on their vacation bucket list.  Really, that is no surprise for such a beautiful and pristine state.  Not only do the visitors enjoy it, but many residents of Denver and other surrounding cities do it on a regular basis.  What a great form of exercise as well as a wonderful transportation source for many.  However, we all know it comes with a risk.  How can one best be safe while enjoying a brisk Colorado bike ride?

Manufacturing and retailing of bikes as well as bicycle tourism is a $1 billion dollar economic business in Colorado. Needless to say, that has made it necessary for Colorado to be a bike friendly state.  Although Denver ranked number one in most dangerous city for pedestrians, in 2013, our state was 2nd on the list of bike friendly states.  This means they are doing their part in keeping the state as safe as possible for cyclists.

But, how can you as a cyclist make sure you are doing your part in keeping yourself safe on the road?

So whether you are here enjoying 25 different scenic byways available in Colorado or biking to work, keep these safety tips in mind!
