I don't know what Sharecare.com is, but they don't' have Minneapolis listed. Most lists cite Minneapolis in their top 5, if not number 1. And if you've ever been to Minneapolis you know why. Denver's fitness pales in comparison to Minneapolis. Not trying to hate, but they have BIKE HIGHWAYS there and those folks rollerblade like it's 1994. And they continue to massively bike commute in weather like this ALL WINTER LONG. To those of you I've seen biking out there in Denver, ROCK ON!
