General Bicycle Safety Tips
In February 2013, Broomfield adopted regulations to address the use of Other Power-Driven Mobility Devices (OPDMDs) to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of disability in local public facilities of the City and County, including trails and parks.
In 2019, Nathan Kral, Open Space and Trails Committee Youth Alternate Member, designed and built an orienteering course located in the Broomfield Commons Open Space for his Eagle Scout Project. He has been a member of Troop 767 for 7 years and members of the troop helped him to build the course. Nathan chose this project because there was no orienteering course in this area and orienteering is invaluable for teaching navigation skill. He chose the Commons Open Space because it is centrally located and familiar to most residents. The Commons has nice sculptures, athletic fields, and walking paths, and it offers spectacular views of the Front Range. Nathan hopes it will encourage residents of Broomfield to learn a new skill and enjoy our open space. Check it out!
