The ten worst Colorado bike collisions of 2012

In 2012, a lot more people rode their bikes in Denver and throughout the state -- which led to an overall jump in the number of crashes. But a more ominous trend, perhaps, was the growing tension on the road between cars and cyclists, resulting in a steady stream of high-profile collisions....some cultural, some physical. Here, we take a look back at the worst of them -- the bizarre, the unimaginable and in two cases, the very tragic ones.
