DENVER — The city is putting more bicycles on the streets than ever in Denver right now. The B-Cycle program added 30 stations to the bike-sharing program last year.

Now it’s putting stations on the streets. Right on the streets.

“It goes back to that vision of moving people, not just cars and sharing the space and seeing the roadway as a place to move all forms of transportation,” Says Nock Bohenkamp, Denver B-Cycle executive director.

The B-Cycle program currently has 700 bikes at 82 locations around the city.

To make Denver’s streets more bicycle friendly, the city is planning to mark off specially designed bike lanes with brightly painted yellow curbs and green painted stripes on streets.
