Thanks to a $3,625 matching grant from LiveWell Colorado, Northglenn is now more accommodating to bicyclists.
Throughout the city, 24 bike racks with the city logo were installed. This includes 12 at city facilities and parks and another 12 at various businesses and places of worship. And just in case you run into some mechanical problems, a new repair station was placed in Northwest Open Space.
The bike racks and repair station are just one component of Connect Northglenn, the city’s pedestrian and bicycle master plan. City Council unanimously approved this document at its Feb. 26 meeting.
“We want to encourage biking, walking, and even running as a way to travel as much as possible,” said City Planner Ashley Kaade. “Not only is it a great way to exercise and enjoy the outdoors, but it also helps to reduce street congestion.”
