Excellent news. Construction has begun on the Legacy Loop Phase 1 Uintah Street underpass project that will create the grade-separated connection for the upcoming paved trail on the west side of Monument Creek. Shout out to the staff of the Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services and City of Colorado Springs Regional Parks, Trails and Open Space, Colorado Springs City Government, The Greenway Fund and the many other players advocating for the Legacy Loop Colorado Springs project.

Thank you Ross Williams for the pro-commuter tip this morning! #legacyloop #connections #connectivity

Isn't there already an underpass under unitah on the east side? Seems to me spending money on duplicating efforts while other projects wait. It's not that hard to think ahead when I'm riding, if I'm going past unitah I will change to the east side which is packed gravel and rideable. Seems like legacy loops gets priority.

My pleasure! I was so excited to see the work commencing on this most excellent project. My commute just got a little easier!

Awesome news. This is a huge deal for making the Legacy Loop Colorado Springs a comfortable place to recreate. There is so much to explore on the west side of Monument Creek. Glad we are going to get more people out there and give them a safe way to cross Uintah. #PedalPower

See below for a message from Southern Colorado Velo

Currently the city is undergoing a master planning process for the North Cheyenne Canon corridor.

If you're like me you might first think about all the elements that are off the paved road. However, this process is also examining how to deal with increased flow of vehicles and vehicle parking throughout the canon. Especially considering the long range expectations of population growth for the region. This means examining how the road is configured and changing the way the roadway functions. The planning process is looking at many different options.

All of these options will affect how road cyclist utilize N Cheyenne Canon Rd and even the connection back down Gold Camp Rd. The city has recognized that this is a valued corridor for cyclist (including road cyclist) and that they have not heard much feedback from the road cycling community.

So please spread the word to attend the upcoming meeting. You can share this email, Facebook event or city website with others. If we want to help shape how cyclists will use the canon in the future we need to share our voice as part of the process

I'd be happy to share other information that I have just contact me at info@socovelo.com

We had the pleasure of hearing Brent Toderian speak at the Bicycle Colorado Moving People Forward conference last year and he has a very inspiring, and challenging message, but one we believe COS is ready to hear.

“The transportation transformation that we need won’t come from designing ‘better cars.’ It can only come from designing better city-regions. - Brent Toderian"

And, our friends at the Council of Neighbors and Organizations have put out that you can use code "CONOGUEST" to get 50% off your ticket!

Thank you to Downtown Colorado Springs for kicking the 2018 City Center Series #1 of 3: Brent Toderian in style!

2018 City Center Series #1 of 3: Brent ToderianJanuary 24, 2018, 6:00pmColorado College Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Art CenterJanuary 24th kicks off the first of three events in the 2018 City Center Series. Tickets are $10 per talk, or $25 for a series pass (discounts available for Downtown Partnership members) via the ticket link below.

“The transportation transformation that we need won't come from designing ‘better cars.’ It can only come from designing better city-regions.” -- Brent Toderian

This talk from internationally regarded urban planner Brent Toderian will focus on how transportation and mobility design affect a city’s environment, economy, and cultural vitality. Presenting next-generation transit-oriented development concepts, Toderian helps citizens re-envision how their city’s transit systems impact their way of life, honing in on changes that will build a “complete city,” not just a livable one.

Thank you to Criterium Bicycles for providing bicycles for the Urban Land Institute Technical Advisory Panel bike tour of the Southeast area of Colorado Springs yesterday. We were able to get them out onto the trails, bike lanes, and connections throughout the region, providing a great opportunity for learning.

Nothing beats experiencing a community from the seat of a bike at a very human speed.
