Colorado Bike Summit

As a lawyer representing injured cyclists and President of Team Evergreen Cycling, I attended the Colorado Bike Summit on February 9-10, 2015. This is a great networking event for all members of the cycling community that included members of the State and Local Government, Bicycle Shops, Bicycle Manufacturers, Bicycle Clothing Companies, Bicycle Event Planners, and advocates for safe bicycling like myself. The Summit provided news and education on improving the future of bicycling in Colorado.

I met a lot of enthusiastic cyclists from all over Colorado. Many of these cyclists are working hard to make cycling in Colorado safer. Two people who are passionate about safer cycling in Colorado are picture to my left in the picture. First is Rachel Bronson who is the Denver Associate City Planner. She is working to add more bicycle lanes in Denver and to make the City safer and more bike-friendly.

In the middle of the picture is Brian Graham who is on the board of non-profit Community Bicycles based in Boulder Colorado. Mr. Graham also works for Boulder County on bicycle issues, road redevelopment, and is encouraging wider shoulder to accommodate bicycles. Interestingly, Peter Wilborn of Bike Law supported Mr. Graham’s efforts in the development a bicycle plan for the City of Charleston.

A federal government agency is making a controversial recommendation to all 50 states that all bicyclists be required to wear helmets.   Mandatory bicycle helmet laws are a terrible idea.  Cycling as a form of recreation and transportation offers a myriad of benefits to the individual and the community as a whole.  An adult or child […]
