No surprise really here... unless you are one of the many who started cycling in Boulder and have no clue what it would be like to be a cyclist in say.... Columbia Missoura.
The most physically fit city in the most physically fit state is an outdoor paradise. No surprise there. Fourteen percent of all trips here are now taken by bike--an almost European figure. Perhaps even more telling is that Boulder is raising the next generation of cyclists: The city's Safe Routes to School program has had such an impact locally that one school reports that 75 percent of its students now bike or walk to school.
Other cities are...
- San Francisco
Now get out and ride, there are few excuses!
