Join us for an exciting panel discussion hosted by Climate Con, where we delve into the future of cycling in the beautiful city of Denver! We have gathered two prominent figures, Denver Mayoral Candidates Kelly Brough and Mike Johnston, to share their insights and visions for enhancing the cycling experience in the Mile High City. 

This event is not to be missed!

Denver is renowned for its stunning landscapes and vibrant outdoor culture, making it a haven for cyclists. But what can we expect in the years to come? What will the bicycle trails of Denver look like, and how can we create a more sustainable and cyclist-friendly city?

To gain a better understanding of the topic at hand, let's take a quick look at the historical data. Denver has a rich cycling heritage dating back to the 19th century when bicycles first became popular. Over the years, the city has recognized the importance of bike trails, leading to the creation of an extensive network that crisscrosses the urban and natural landscapes.

Currently, Denver boasts over 85 miles of dedicated bike trails, connecting neighborhoods, parks, and iconic landmarks. But the potential for growth is immense. Did you know that Denver has set ambitious goals to expand the network to 125 miles of bike trails by 2025? This bold endeavor aims to provide even more opportunities for residents and visitors to explore our city on two wheels.

During this panel discussion, we will explore the historical significance of bike trails in Denver and Colorado, and we will dive into the exciting plans to build new trails that will revolutionize the cycling experience in our city. What will these new trails look like? How will they contribute to a greener, healthier, and more accessible Denver? Our esteemed panelists, Kelly Brough and Mike Johnston, will share their thoughts, ideas, and strategies for making Denver a world-class cycling destination.

We invite you to be a part of this engaging conversation about the future of cycling in Denver. The event will take place on Friday, May 19th, at 2pm, and will be held at The Escapist, in the Santa Fe Arts District. The venue's intimate setting will provide the perfect atmosphere for an interactive and thought-provoking discussion.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for cycling and sustainability. Mark your calendars, and RSVP today to secure your spot at this exciting panel discussion. 

Together, let's shape the future of cycling in our beloved Mile High City!
