Bicycle Colorado is the nonprofit organization dedicated to building a bicycle-friendly Colorado. Our mission statement: to encourage and promote bicycling, increase safety, improve conditions and provide a voice for cyclists in Colorado.Established in 1992, we are supported by thousands of members who realize that we need to work together to protect the rights of bicyclists – or risk losing them. We work for more bike lanes and paths, better trails, education outreach and bicycle-friendly laws. Our efforts are primarily focused at the state and regional level since that’s where so many of the policy decisions that affect bicyclists are made.

The Cancer Fitness Institute has been providing exercise programs to cancer survivors for over twelve years, helping over 1,600 cancer survivors regain strength and confidence through exercise. Our focus is on providing a program that is “health” rather than “hospital” oriented, to give our participants the opportunity to exercise in their own community and to incorporate exercise as a lifelong habit. The three month CancerFit exercise program is open to adults of all ages and fitness levels. Participants are both men and women who have survived every type of cancer. Exercise physiologists with a cancer specialty oversee all aspects of the exercise regimen, which aids in recovery and general fitness during and after treatment. The fitness program includes flexibility, balance, cardiovascular and strength training. The program is currently offered through 13 recreation facilities across Colorado, with one location in Minnesota.
The Cancer Fitness Institute has created a “train the trainer” program, offering education to exercise physiologists and other fitness professionals on our CancerFit® program. Our goal is two-fold: create a small army of exercise professionals specifically trained to work with cancer survivors, and see the CancerFit® program implemented in every community across the nation.

Project ReCycle was founded in 2010 to provide smiles to children all over Colorado via a bicycle. That has not changed today. Our first run at this venture led us to create a program that would not only guarantee smiles but would also influence children’s academic behavior in a positive manner. As part of our Dream Bike Program,Gold-Participant Children, during their academic year, are encouraged to earn a bike by improving in 3 areas; Respect, Attendance and Academic Growth.
Project ReCycle works with multiple agencies to provide stability for children. The gifted bicycle becomes a constant in a life of change. Project ReCycle collects bicycles from participating locations on a weekly basis. Bikes are brought back to the repair shop and inspected. If a bike cannot be fixed for reuse, it is dismantled. Each reusable part is salvage for future use. All remaining bike parts are then recycled.
