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

Our state’s report card emphasizes that “Colorado is a model for bicycling traffic laws.” Other factors that helped Colorado achieve this high ranking include our 3 Feet to Pass law, Complete Streets policy, dedicated state bicycle funding, state bicycle plan, Share the Road campaign, and bicycle education for police.
