When you live in Denver, it's not surprising to see hearty folks pedaling to work on days when the temperature is in the teens and the snow is piled high. We're just like that: Denver is a bicycle town. So is Boulder. That may be why Colorado is the fittest state in the Union. Need more proof that bicycling is good for you? Consult this graphic below! And remember, it doesn't matter what kind of bicycle you have, as long as you're pedaling it.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
