From the BoulderiJournal
Denver was honored for its efforts with a silver award from the League of American Bicyclists, which is a 133-year-old Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit. Each year, through a voluntary application process, the group ranks states, cities and businesses on how conducive they are to cyclists.
But it's not just Denver that takes biking seriously. The League of American Bicyclists honored Boulder and Fort Collins with platinum awards; Breckenridge, Crested Butte, Durango, Steamboat Springs with gold awards; Aspen, Colorado Springs, Gunnison, Longmont, Salida and Vail earned silver awards; and Arvada, Carbondale, Castle Rock, Golden, Greeley, Lakewood and Summit County achieved bronze status.
*The state of Washington bested Colorado in the rankings, receiving top honors. (Editor's note: Washington, you'd better watch your back. But we DID BEAT OREGON. Kidding. Colorado still has a long way to go.)
