Bicycle Colorado

Bike Events Program Manager

Full-Time
Posted 5 days ago (2022-11-08)
APPLY FOR JOB VISIT WEBSITE

THE ORGANIZATION

Bicycle Colorado is a membership-driven 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 1992. We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by everyone in our state. We are recognized as one of the nation’s most prominent organizations of our kind.

We advocate for bicycle-friendly policies and infrastructure and provide educational support to help kids and adults safely and confidently ride a bicycle. We also educate drivers to safely operate their vehicles in harmony with bicycles on the road.

Bicycle Colorado’s Denver advocacy arm, the Denver Streets Partnership, works to reclaim Denver’s streets for people walking, rolling, biking, and using transit and to build safe, healthy, and equitable communities. The Denver Streets Partnership believes in an equitable and vibrant Denver that guarantees our public spaces are designed for people.

Our team strives to build a movement that advocates for safe streets and more accessible biking. We collaborate with various constituent groups, including elected officials, government agencies, bike industry organizations, bike event directors, community leaders, and other nonprofits.

THE BIKE EVENTS PROGRAM

Bicycle Colorado has provided marketing and advocacy support to bike events for almost three decades. Today, the team partners with and is supported by 43 events produced by 33 organizations. Since the early 1970s, Colorado Cycling (formerly Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado) has operated as the “local association” for USA Cycling and has provided marketing and race day logistical support to primarily competitive road and cyclocross events. Today, the team partners with 72 events produced by 29 organizations.

In 2022, the two organizations will merge, and in early 2023, Bicycle Colorado will launch a revamped Events Program to support the success of competitive and non-competitive events and the clubs and teams that participate (the Colorado Cycling brand will be retired). As part of the revamped Events Program, Bicycle Colorado is considering offering the following services:

Event Advocacy: Help secure access to public land, including trails and roads, and secure other services from local governments, at a reasonable price. Perform other advocacy activities as needed to help create an environment that is conducive to bike events.

Marketing and Promotion: Execute a marketing plan that drives participation in events and bike clubs and teams. This includes publishing a comprehensive events calendar.

Operating Best Practices: In collaboration with event directors, adopt shared best practices that will result in high-quality events accessible to a variety of riders. Included in this support is an intentional effort to attract new riders from historically underrepresented groups.

Operating Costs: Bundle demand for event services and supplies to secure volume discounts.

Education: Provide — or support bike clubs in providing — learning experiences that are onramps for people to participate in competitive and non-competitive events, especially for underrepresented groups.

Competition Support: Provide race officials and course marshals; manage and publish results of races and points competitions; provide course infrastructure and materials (e.g., podiums, course tape, number plates).
