The number of serious and fatal bicycle accidents in Colorado has continued to increase in recent years with the popularity of cycling for recreation and fitness.
While cyclists account for only about one percent of all Colorado traffic collisions, riders are among those most likely to be seriously injured or killed in a crash.
Statistics continue to show a high concentration of Denver bicycle accidents occurring in certain neighborhoods, with over half of all bicycle accidents reported in Congress Park, Westwood, Cheesman Park, Highland, Baker, City Park West, Lincoln Park, Civic Center, North Capitol Hill, Capitol Hill, Union Station, Central Business District and Five Points.
