From Petition Creator: Denver's bicycling community came together with one voice for a protected bicycle facility downtown. The voice of more than 800 petitioners was heard by the Denver City Council out of which three leaders emerged as supporters of the people's desire for a protected bicycle lane - Councilwoman Shepherd, Councilwoman Montero, and Councilwoman Ortega. In addition, the Denver Department of Public works also responded to the people and has committed to the installation of a protected bike lane on 15th Street by Spring 2014.

The Denver Department of Public Works is currently designing a bicycle lane for 15th Street in downtown Denver.  Many cities have chosen to physically separate bicycle lanes from vehicle lanes as a way to improve the safety of  bicyclists, motorists, and pedestrians.  We are calling on Denver to make this same choice for 15th Street.

      I regularly ride my bike up and down 15th street. I would feel much safer with an appropriately designed bike lane.

      Cars are used to crossing over paint. We do it all the time to change lanes. Paint is not a barrier. It doesn't alert the motorist or the cyclist.
