EVENTS & ACTIVITIES
Throughout the year, we organize informative and fun quarterly meetings, open to all. ATAT leadership provides updates on current and proposed initiatives as well as encourages engaged community members to discuss ideas, concerns and opportunites.
We also host, co-host and provide outreach at numerous events including: Ridge at 38 Criterium, Pedal to Patio [Bike to Work Day], Bike and Walk to School Days, Carnation Parade, USA Pro Challenge, RidgeFest and Community Walks & Bike Rides.
ADVOCACY & ACTION
In order to identify and support active transportation, ATAT officers closely track and communicate updates on proposed and funded initiatives. We help connect stakeholders and elected leaders for best outcomes through surveys and ongoing engagement with city staff.
Community members are encouraged to join an Action Team to guide and support active transportation: S.A.F.E. [Safe Avenues For Everyone]; League of American Bicyclists "Bicycle Friendly Community"; Events; Outreach/Social Meda; 38th Ave Main Street.
CONNECT & ENCOURAGE
We believe active communites are connected communities which is why we faclitate as many points of connection as possible! Neighbors stay informed, provide inpsiration and exchange ideas on our Facebook group, at events and throughout the city.
ATAT leaders provide updates and calls to action through our email list and in-person contacts.
How We Work Together
The ATATs are a citizen-led organization that works with residents, city leadership, businesses and partner organizations to increase opportunities to walk, to ride a bike and to connect with transit in Wheat Ridge. We envision a physically and economically vibrant community where people of all ages and abilities can maintain safe, healthy and connected lives through easy and equitable access to active transportation options.
