We recently started a Bike 36 group on Strava for cyclists to track their trips along the US 36 Bikeway. Join today and see if you can make it to the top of the leaderboard!
The bicycle route from Boulder to Westminster is now safer and simpler, providing a direct commuter highway for cyclists. The 18-mile US 36 Bikeway runs from Table Mesa Station in Boulder to 80th Avenue in Westminster. The 12-foot-wide bikeway features protective barriers from motorists, underpasses and way finding signage.
The first portion of the US 36 Bikeway (from Westminster to Louisville/Superior) opened June 24, 2015, and the remaining 7-mile segment to Table Mesa Station opened March 1, 2016.
The US 36 Bikeway ties into local bicycling facilities and connects to the six US 36 RTD Stations. There is also way finding signage to guide bicyclists to existing bike paths and trail systems within the corridor. Those using the US 36 Bikeway will be able to safely travel through intersections via the following underpasses:
East Flatiron Circle
West Flatiron Circle
East of Davidson Mesa
South Boulder Creek
The remaining places where cyclists will cross at signalized intersections include Sheridan Boulevard/88th Avenue and Church Ranch Boulevard/104th in Westminster.
The Bike 36 map includes bicycle facilities, such as bike lanes and multi-use paths, that connect with the US 36 Bikeway to help cyclists navigate communities in the Northwest region.
