Bicycling Magazine named Boulder the third best town for bicycling in the nation.  It’s no surprise to me, because in many cases it is easier to get around by bike than it is by car.  Frankly, I am spoiled and take it for granted that I have many options to get wherever I’m going via multiple bike friendly routes.  I remember a few years ago I took a short ride in Orlando Fl. and felt like my life was in danger.

The magazine did not disclose all of their criteria but they said it included, bike paths, bike lanes, bike shops, bike friendly regulations and public bike racks.  It is hard to define a bike culture but Boulder’s got it.  From organized cruiser bike rides to professional teams living and training in town to families riding down the Boulder Creek Path biking is everywhere.
