Bicycle Colorado Action Alert "Action Alert:
Colorado Open Roads Act

Please Contact Your State Representative!

Please contact your Colorado Representative and ask them to support House Bill 1092 for Open Roads. Voicemails and emails are great, and be sure to include your home address so they know you are from their district. The House vote may be any day this week, so please call today.

Step 1: Find your Colorado House District (1 through 65)

Enter your home address at this linked website.

Click the 'Find Your Districts' button and see your 'CO House ##' on the right

Step 2: Talking Points (please be polite)

I am asking for your support of House Bill 1092 (Kerr-Brophy)
-This bill will give people the freedom to travel the state by bicycle.
-Banning bikes gives Colorado's bicycle and tourism industries a black eye.
-Bicycles simply need an alternate route if a road is closed.

Step 3: Call or Email the Representative from Your House District

Contact information for each Representative can be found on our website. Please spread the word and share this with other friends of cycling.

Thanks for your help keeping roads open to bicycling!
