VAIL (AP) - Vail was named a "bicycle friendly community" by the League of American Bicyclists last week.
The organization gave Vail a bronze designation for its system of recreation paths and the popularity of biking in the resort town, said Gregg Barrie, the town's landscape architect.
Vail joins Durango, Boulder, Steamboat Springs and six other Colorado cities and towns that have received the designation.
Thirteen other towns across the country received the distinction this year.
