Biking is ubiquitous in Boulder. Bike riders are everywhere. We do more than simply share the road, here in Boulder bikes and vehicles have found a way to co-exist. I was inspired to write about the best bike rides in Boulder and how to find them by the article, Spin Cities, published in 5280 Magazine. In this article they showcased road rides all over Colorado. This is important information, but in the Boulder area we have more than our fair share of great road rides and I want to share those with 8z Rentals readers and beyond!
