Colorado climbs to 4th in bicycle-friendly rankings
Colorado is praised for its “national model” bike laws by the League of American Bicyclists.
In the newly released bicycle-friendly state rankings, Colorado rose to #4, up from #12 last year.
“Colorado exemplifies many of the qualities the League looks for in a bicycle friendly state, including a bicycle commuter mode share that’s more than double the national average, a bike-friendly department of transportation, and a top-notch statewide advocacy group.” -League of American Bicyclists
