Report From Boulder, CO: A City That “Gets It”

Streetfilms'
Clarence Eckerson, Jr. just returned from Boulder, Colorado -- recent
recipient of the League of American Bicyclists' Platinum award for
bike-friendliness. He writes:

Boulder "gets it" big time -- bicycling is important to its residents.
So is a healthy walking and green living environment. But please note:
this is not a car-free utopia -- the vast majority of residents own
cars. The difference here is there are many safe and convenient options
available (transit, walk, bike, etc.) and its denizens can choose the
way they want to go.

there are many types of bus passes available, and the city is
constantly looking to the next way to improve their streets.

Streetfilms will soon be posting videos from the visit. In the meantime, here's more from Clarence
