Active Transportation Advisory Committee
Members of the ATAC are residents from the city of Colorado Springs who serve as an advisory committee on cycling, running and other forms of active lifestyles within the city limits. In addition to serving the active community within Colorado Springs, the members advise on improvements to accessibility, connectivity, and the ease of inter-modal mobility throughout the city limits. The public is always invited and encouraged to attend ATAC monthly meetings.
Bicycle Colorado uses the tools of education and advocacy to make Colorado one of the most bicycle-friendly states. We encourage and promote bicycling, increase safety, improve conditions and provide a voice for people who ride bicycles in Colorado. With the support of our members, we’ve made significant strides in improving bicycling since 1992.
Bike to Work Day
To make cycling events come to fruition and remain free to the public, community support is vital. Many volunteers are needed each year to plan events, staff the annual Mountain Metro Rides Bike to Work Day, https://youtu.be/F7A3Mp27dQc and staff the FREE Bicycle Valets that are provided at large community events. Without volunteers, it would be impossible to execute these events.
If you are committed to encourage cycling for personal and community health, alternative transportation, recreation, and sustainability, we encourage you to become a volunteer.
