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

1:37 PM EDT on October 3, 2008


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 owncars. The difference here is there are many safe and convenient optionsavailable (transit, walk, bike, etc.) and its denizens can choose theway they want to go.


Inter-modal transportation is highly encouraged,there are many types of bus passes available, and the city isconstantly 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.
