Cyclists and walkers, families and kids, are invited to walk or bike Candy Cane Lane – the Sweetest Ride – on Lakewood Gulch, June 24, 1 to 3 p.m., sponsored by Colfax Business Improvement District.
Guests can check out the new wayfinding signs, search out sweets, snacks and fix up their bike with a light tune at a bevy of booths along the route, from the Perry Light Rail Station to the confluence with the South Platte.
Volunteers installed multi-lingual wayfinding signage on the Lakewood Gulch Trail on June 11.
The project, West Colfax Connects, builds on CBID’s efforts to improve pedestrian mobility to support access to businesses for local residents. With funding from the Colorado Health Foundation, the goal is to connect West Colfax with surrounding neighborhoods, particularly Sun Valley as it undergoes major redevelopment. The project will increase ease of access via Lakewood Gulch through a system of wayfinding signs, and offers a safer route between neighborhoods by foot and bike than crossings like the one at 14th and Federal.
