Volunteers celebrated the completion of multi-lingual wayfinding signage on the Lakewood Gulch with the Candy Cane Lane walk and bike ride on June 11. If you missed it – or didn’t get enough fun – there are two additional rides coming up this month:
• Saturday, July 22, from 1 to 3 p.m., with a bike rodeo by Bikes Together, just north of the Rude Recreation Center parking lot near Decatur. Sign up at bit.ly/gulchride; first 15 kids ages 3 to 13 get a free bike.
• Friday, July 28, from 2 to 4:30 p.m., meeting at the Decatur Light Rail Station; followed by a happy hour. Sign-up required.
The project, West Colfax Connects, builds on the West Colfax Business Improvement District’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. The signage offers a safer route between neighborhoods by foot and bike than crossings like the one at 14th and Federal.
