The Ride of Silence is an annual international event to honor cyclists who were killed or seriously injured on public roadways. As cities around the world, including Denver, have adopted Vision Zero policies, there is an even greater awareness around the need to design safer streets to protect the most vulnerable users of the road. Screen Shot 2017-06-14 at 1.02.12 PM

The Denver Vision Zero Coalition is a group of community organizations in Denver that formed in January 2016 to support the City and County of Denver’s adoption of Vision Zero and the goal of zero traffic fatalities or serious injuries. The mission of the Vision Zero Coalition is to inform and advocate for the swift, data-driven and equitable implementation of Vision Zero projects and policies in order to end all traffic deaths and serious injuries on Denver roadways.
