Shift Your Ride This Summer
This September, we want you to Shift Your Ride!
Why Shift Your Ride? By making simple choices about how we move around, we can save money and save time and shift extra time and money to activities that really matter to us, like spending time with our family, clean air and crisp mountain views, or getting and staying fit. Save money by fueling up a car less often. Save time by getting exercise while you commute instead of spending free time exercising. Shift to what matters most to you.
Shifting your ride can be easy! There are many ways to get around Fort Collins without using a car, even if you have extra errands to run. We've compiled several resources on this page to help you get out of your car and actually enjoy your transportation options. Check out our Shift Your Ride website for details.

Smart Cycling is a course for moderately experienced, returning and seasoned cyclists alike that will give you the confidence to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail. You will learn how to conduct bicycle safety checks, on-bike handling skills and crash avoidance techniques. The class consists of 3 hours of classroom-style instruction, 1.5 hours of bike handling skills practice and an ride on city streets and trials. We recommended this class for adults and youth above age 14 (ages 12-14 can be accepted upon instructor approval). Participants should be prepared to ride their bicycle as there is a riding portion to this class. A helmet and bicycle in good working condition are required. A water bottle is recommended.
June is Bike Month!
Every June, Colorado celebrates Bike Month and here in Fort Collins, we love anything that highlights and promotes people who ride bicycles
While Bike to Work Day in 2020 will be quite different and postponed until September, we still encourage you to use bicycling as a regular form of transportation in throughout June.
