In Colorado, June marks Bike Month. Join us throughout the month as we celebrate all things bike! Check out our webpage with details for how to support Bike Month.
Our signature event, the 28th Annual Bike to Work Day, is Wednesday, June 24. Breakfast stations located all over the city will be ready to reward those who arrive on two wheels. For those businesses interested in being a part of this staple event in Fort Collins, the deadline to sign up is Wednesday, April 29.
Open Streets events invite people to experience public streets in ways other than driving. By temporarily closing streets to motorized traffic, Open Streets provides a safe and comfortable space for people to walk, bicycle, jog, rollerblade and play!
The first event for 2015 is scheduled for Sunday, June 7 on W. Elizabeth St. We are looking for like-minded businesses to partner with for this event and host interactive booths and activities along the route. Applications are due Friday, May 15.
Interested in being a part of this wonderful community event? Visit our Partner webpage for more information.

PLATINUM Bicycle Friendly Community, Awarded May 2013
"A bicycle culture is key in defining the fabric of what makes Fort Collins a great place to live, work and play. We know it is a primary means of transportation for many, a major form of recreation for most, and a significant factor in attracting new businesses and new residents," stated Mayor Weitkunat. "Our City works alongside many community organizations to build a seamless bikeway network and ensure a safe cycling community. We are proud to accept this Platinum designation. Bicycling is a community value and a way of life in Fort Collins."
On February 26, 2013, FC Bikes proudly submitted an application to the League of American Bicyclists to be considered for their Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) Program. The BFC Program offers national recognition for communities that actively support bicycling. A Bicycle Friendly Community welcomes cyclists by providing safe accommodation for cycling and encourages people to bike for transportation and recreation. Check out the video we produced to supplement our application.
