C4C’s Mission

We are responsible cyclists who lead and partner with our communities to develop safety, educational, philanthropic, and social initiatives and programs to create a positive experience for all users of our roads and bikeways.

OUR VISION

We serve the community to achieve safe cycling and lower stress for all users on the roads and bikeways through the reduction of incidents.

We give back to the community to create harmony between the various users.

We partner within our communities to embrace cycling as part of the transportation mix.

C4C’s History Started in 2013 with Support for Boulder Communities Affected by Flooding.

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 continued to partner with the community on a growing list of outcomes that benefit our communities.

Cyclists 4 Community’s sole paid staff person collaborates with Boulder County and other entities on Transportation Master Plans to create positive and collective outcomes for transportation infrastructure and policy.   C4C serves as the parent organization for Wednesday Morning Velo as well.

Joseph Vigil

Director, Past President

Joseph bought his first bike, used, in 1976 for $2.00. He rode that single speed — pink with tassels — bike up and down west Arapahoe Avenue for much of his elementary school life. Although not a native, he has lived in Boulder since toddlerhood. Since giving up the pink one, he has purchased a few more, and tries to ride every day, year round. Whether that ride is commuting to work, riding up Flagstaff before sunrise, mountain biking on a local trail or on an indoor trainer, he is grateful for the huge beneficial impact cycling has had on his life. After seeing the impact C4C had on the devastated communities of Jamestown and Lyons (where Joseph graduated from High School) he knew he needed to join their efforts and start giving back to the communities who have supported him all these years.
