Yes, it's just a small town as official population figures go. Grand Junction is only Colorado's 15th largest city, about the size of Edina, Minnesota, but it's also the center of the nation's 268th largest Metropolitan Statistical Area, a little bigger than Sioux City.
But those comparisons aren't what struck me today. I'm thinking about bike-crazy towns like Minneapolis and Portland. Last week both The Daily Sentinel and The Free Press ran 24-plus-page cycling inserts.
Show me another daily newspaper that has a drop-down menu like this. Grand Junction has two of them, plus four downtown bike shops in a four-block area.
