As cyclists, business people, and citizens, Cyclists 4 Community aims to build a stronger relationship with all users of the roads, trails, and bikeways. We do this by providing support for Boulder County communities through philanthropic activities including disaster relief, support of non-profit community organizations, promoting responsible cycling and greater cycling participation through initiatives that improve the safety of cyclists on our roadways.
Where We Ride
Dedicated to gathering resources to help local communities in need.
After the 2013 flood, cyclists in Boulder County rallied the business community to pull together resources to help those in need. From 2013 to 2016, through events including Cyclists 4 Jamestown, Cyclists 4 Lyons, and the Boulder Bike & Brew Festival, we raised more than $200,000 to help communities rebuild from disasters and provide additional assistance to families in need.
Supporting Boulder cycling
communities since 2013.
The idea for Cyclists 4 Community started in September 2013, immediately following the devastating floods that left Boulder County, and especially the towns we love to ride in, in ruins. As cyclists, we felt that it was time to make a stand and help these communities bounce back. During our first year, we held 3 events, the Cyclists 4 Jamestown, the Fat Tire Flurry winter ride to Jamestown, and Cyclists 4 Lyons, which combined raised more than $200,000 to help the towns of Jamestown and Lyons recover. Since that time, we’ve helped with relief for families affected by the 2015 Cold Springs fire in Nederland, and families in need through support of the Emergency Family Assistance Association and Boulder Food Rescue.
