More March Madness: REI Pits Cycling Cities Against Each Other

Image: REI

We hope you're enjoying our Parking Madness Sweet 16-style tournament to determine the most soul-killing parking crater in a U.S. downtown. Here's another one you might like: REI is holding a tournament to determine the best cycling city. Today, Denver and Washington, DC square off in the Suit & Tie Dye region. Tomorrow, it's New York vs. Minneapolis: Concrete Jungle Region.

We've got a couple dogs in this fight (though LA and Chicago are grumpy about being excluded and have vowed to start their own tournament) so we'll be eagerly following the Cycling Town Showdown results. We thought you also might enjoy a little more sustainable-transportation madness before March is over!
