Biking in Denver and beyond, is bigger than ever. Nationwide, bike commuting is at an all-time high. Just in Denver, the number of bike commuters grew by 130% between 1990 and 2013. In addition to bike-friendly lanes for commuters, the Denver area has miles and miles of diverse trails for recreational cyclists, both dirt trails for adventurous mountain bikers, and paved trials that connect riders to all the big downtown attractions.
