Friends of the U.S. 36 Bikeway seeks volunteers

LOUISVILLE — Friends of the U.S. 36 Bikeway, a community cycling program that launched on June 1, is looking for volunteers to lead rides for each community along the U.S. Highway 36 corridor between Boulder and Westminster, participate in biannual bikeway clean-ups and interface with businesses and local governments on the issues affecting bicyclists on the corridor.

The newly launched program falls under the umbrella of 36 Commuting Solutions and was established to promote bike commuting on the route through community-led efforts. The program convenes cyclists, governments and businesses to address the issues that affect cyclists and provide viable, long-term solutions, while introducing, promoting and preserving the newly opened bikeway.

Since its debut, the group has garnered more than 50 volunteers and the support of Boulder, Louisville, Superior, Broomfield and Westminster. Cyclists and sustainable transportation advocates from communities along the corridor are invited to join the program, which has a one-year goal of doubling the number of cyclists on the bikeway from an estimated 100 to 200 a day.
