About Open Streets:

“Open Streets” is a nationwide initiative that promotes community involvement, local businesses and physical activity, while encouraging the use of public space as a means for the community to gather and meet, play and try active modes of transportation. With more than 100 documented initiatives in North America, Open Streets events are increasingly common in cities seeking innovative ways to achieve environmental, social, economic and public health goals.

About FC Bikes Program:

A City of Fort Collins program, FC Bikes works to create a safe and healthy community by encouraging more people to bicycle in the city. FC Bikes provides year-round educational programs for all ages and hosts several special events fostering and encouraging the public to use bicycling as a means of transportation and recreation. Their efforts have led to Fort Collins being awarded Platinum Bicycle Friendly Community from the League of American Bicyclists, one of just five such communities in the county.
