As promised in the last Bike-n-Ride Newsletter, below are the new terms and conditions for bike shelters. I also included some other info I thought might of interest to you on Boulder County’s transportation future.

Bike Shelter Clean-up and New Bike-n-Ride Terms and Conditions

Abandoned bikes and other personal items not related to bike commuting are clogging shelters and taking away Bike shelter cleanupfrom their purpose of providing safe and secure weather protected bicycle storage for commuters making connections to and from local or regional transit routes.

Read the new Bike-n-ride terms and conditions. Here is a quick Twitter-sized version of the terms:

Users may store one operable bicycle and bicycle accessories for up to 30 days at a time in a shelter. Storage of other unrelated personal items is prohibited. If your bike has been tagged as abandoned, you have 30 days to remove it from the shelter before it will be removed and disposed of.

If your bike is tagged and it is not abandoned you will need to remove the bike from the shelter for one week. When you return it, you will need to lock it to a different rack than the one it was on when it was tagged.

Signs have been posted in all shelters about the new terms and conditions. In the coming weeks, abandoned bikes will be tagged for removal. Unrelated personal items will be removed without warning.

Help Determine the Future of Transportation in Boulder County

Boulder County Transportation is updating the existing Transportation Master Plan (TMP). The update will only be successful with from people who live, work, and play in Boulder County. Please help inform the process by completing an online survey by Sunday, Oct. 21 in order for staff to understand what you think is working well and what Boulder County should do to improve the transportation system in the future. A few minutes of your time will provide valuable insight and will help jumpstart the update.

Take the survey today, or visit to learn more.

The primary purpose of this effort is to update the original Transportation Master Plan, adopted in 2012, to include new or trending transportation-related technology, changes in demographics, land use, travel patterns, opportunities for infrastructure and economic resiliency, and identify funding challenges and opportunities.

In addition to the survey, Boulder County Transportation will also host a series of public meetings where interested community members can visit with and provide invaluable input to staff on the focus areas mentioned above. Attendees can also complete the survey at the event.
