Colorado named second most bicycle-friendly state

Colorado has been named the second most bicycle-friendly state in the nation by the League of American Bicyclists. The state moved up from fourth place last year and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he's gunning for No. 1.

"An important part of making Colorado the healthiest state is encouraging people to be more active in their everyday routines," Hickenlooper said. "We're proud that our bicycle-friendly policies have skyrocketed Colorado's rank up 20 places in just five years, and we are committed to being No. 1 in the near future." 

The League released its annual rankings during National Bike Month. For the sixth year in a row, Washington continues to lead the nation, with high performance in all categories. Colorado continued its steady climb to the top and Delaware, Illinois and Arizona charged up the ranking in 2013, shaking up the top 10.Click here to see the ranking chart.
