Y'all can bike here. I mean, almost ANYONE can bike here. There's a BikeShare program (sign up through Zagster) that enables you to rent a bike for an hour or a day.
Fort Collins is one of only four Platinum Bike-Friendly Communities (as determined by the League of American Bicyclists) in the U.S. The city is placing a big priority on making bicycle access and use easy. [More info on that at Bike Fort Collins.] Unless you head for the hills, the terrain is relatively flat and easy to pedal over. As well, the climate is just danged good for being outside. Bikes are often the best way to get around. Parking is slim in Old Town. Traffic, although nothing like a huge city's, is sometimes there (though it's shocking how patient most people are when driving here). So sometimes, when people are gathering, you'll see this:
And if you're thinking of heading out with some friends to visit a brewery or two, track this puppy down and use it:
Thanks to Kyle Eddy, we have some bike trees out front if you prefer non-traditional bike parking (we also have some bike racks back by the Classy Glass Station near our garage). Alternatively, you may choose to arrive in a pack and just choose safety-in-numbers parking.
Once a year, come to the home of the original Tour de Fat, put on by New Belgium Brewing and benefiting 3 local bicycle charities. There's nothing like Fort Collins in full celebration of craft beer and bicycles (and great weather and fantastic city-dom). This is one of 4 days a year that Horse & Dragon closes (the others are Jan. 1, Thanksgiving Day, and Dec. 25).
So if you live here, bike on. If you're scheduling a visit, make sure bicycling is a part of it. (If you don't know where to start, contact Bob of Beer and Bike Tours.)
P.S. -- Wear a helmet, lest you end up looking worse than this guy (who was wearing a helmet when this happened, thank goodness):
We sell adult bicycle helmets at cost ($10) and sets of front & back, 5-LED lights ($10 per set) in the taproom. When the FC Bike Share counter is open in the Downtown Transit Center (currently 9am-1pm M-F), thanks to a grant from Kaiser Permanente they currently have adult bicycle helmets for sale for $5. Do wear one if you can!
