Welcome to the Bike Colorado Springs Bike Ambassador Program
Our young Bike Ambassador program founded in 2020 is a community resource built to locally support all things bicycles. In the programs first year our Ambassadors helped Parks staff the Garden of the Gods Early Bird Hike & Bike events, supported trail ribbon cuttings, and distributed Bike To Biz Week materials to local businesses.
The Bicycle Ambassador program is all-volunteer but serve in a professional capacity, partnering with beneficiaries to support events and projects throughout the Pikes Peak Region.
TEACH! UNITE! ADVOCATE!
Our Outreach Committee along with our Education Committee are building a standardized training program for our Bicycle Ambassadors, using the Bike Master Plan as a starting point. The Bike Master Plan names Bike COS as a direct partner in for some initiatives focused on generating enthusiasm and excitement for bicycling including a Bicycle Ambassador program.
