How Boulder Colorado became "bike friendly"

Boulder Bike Story from Bikes Belong on Vimeo.

I lived in Boulder County and frequently cycled in the city of Boulder, and I can attest to the bike friendliness and amazing cycling opportunities there. Boulder residents began building for non car transportation in the 60s. Last year, 46% of the city's transportation budget was spent on cycling, pedestrian and public transit projects! The 2008 Census community survey released last month shows that 10% of commuters ride their bikes to work.

  1. Of course, as the Google ad indicates, Boulder is a Bike Friendly town, as people can't afford cars, due to the high cost of Real Estate.

  2. 46% to cycling-pedestrian choices with a master plan to connect, sweet.
