In January, Black Hawk's Board of Aldermen voted to prohibit bicycling as a safety precaution.
"The closure of Gregory Street in downtown Black Hawk severs a popular cycling route as well as a nationally designated cycling route connecting national parks," Maggie Thompson with Bicycle Colorado said.
More than eight tickets have been handed out to people who have violated the law in Black Hawk.
"I don't think it's really fair," Nancy Meier, a bicyclist at the Capitol, said. "They can't tell us where we can and can not ride".
Bicycle Colorado sponsored Tuesday evening's protest. State Senators Greg Brophy (R-Wray) and Chris Romer (D-Denver) spoke out at the protest and threatened to file a lawsuit against Black Hawk if the ban was not overturned.
"You can not ban us! And if you do, we will sue you!" Brophy shouted to the crowd.
Bicycle Colorado asked the city of Black Hawk to put the issue back on its agenda. According to Bicycle Colorado, the city said "no."
The city of Black Hawk has not commented on Tuesday's protest.
