Colorado Bike Law in the Classroom

We got lots of complaints about the cycling "techniques" of students around college campuses. Here's a group of students wanting to learn to commute safely and to teach others how to do so.

Bike Law Colorado attorney Brian Weiss talked to college students at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU) on the Auraria Campus in Denver, Colorado on March 21, 2014 about bicycle laws in Denver. The class is putting together a study to teach students and bicycle commuters how to navigate safely in Denver. Brian explained the laws that apply to cyclists, and gave the students insights on how to be a safe commuter.

Brian also gave the class examples of the right and wrong things to do as a bicycle commuter. The students also learned the reasons behind the rules of the road that apply to bicycles. There was about an hour of questions from the students about bicycle laws and how to improve them which was quite engaging.

MSU Professor Amy Findeiss coordinated the bicycle commuter study for her research into cyclist commuting behavior and cyclist habits in the Denver area. In addition to Brian Weiss, Ms. Findeiss also invited the Denver City Planner to discuss bicycle commuting with her students.
