Urban Street Design class tours the city with Bike Denver

On Thursday, September 14, Bike Denver took the CVEN 5800 Urban Street Design class around Denver on a City Spin tour. They toured several bike lanes, including the new Broadway two-way cycle track and the Cherry Creek bike trail. Part of the tour included a light rail transit stop and how the bike-train connection works at that location.

The class is currently studying bicycle transportation and design, and this “first-hand view” along with bicycle advocates will hopefully influence their future designs.

The class was also joined by Steve Smith of RTD (former CU-Denver student) and Emily Cushman of the City/County of Denver (also a former CU-Denver student). Regular Bike Denver participants and other CU-Denver students joined the tour as well.
