Most Bike Friendly Cities

By | March 31, 2011

Chicago is quickly becoming one of the greenest cities in the US, however, it still has a little ways to go when it comes to being one of the most bike friendly cities in the US.

Even though Chicago has more than 110 miles of on-street bike lanes, more than 30 miles of marked shared lanes, many miles of off-street paths (including the 18.5-mile Lakefront Trail), more than 12,000 bike racks, and sheltered, high-capacity, bike parking areas at many CTA rail stations; we’re still out ranked by Minneapolis MN, Portland OR, Boulder CO, Seattle WA, Eugene OR, San Francisco CA, Madison WI, New York City NY, and Tucson AZ.

Did your city make the list?

    We must go green,there is a lot of pollution in the environment and the need of the hour is to protect the environment and keep it as clean and healthy for safer and better and healthier lives.

    Tel Aviv is the best city for biking: 350 days of sun, super flat, beutifull woman walking on the sideways and the beach is 5 minutes from everyware (:

    I’m located in Shanghai, China and bicycles are a major form of transportation. A couple years ago, they actually started bike rental programs in front of major bus and subway lines to encourage the use of bikes vs. taxis. =)

    Not surprised about Portland at all. They will literally close entire bridges just so flocks of avid bike riders will be able to freely navigate streets and roads.

    New York! Yes! The bike lanes have been creeping in more and more, soon we’ll be fighting the bike traffic rather than the car traffic. I’m enjoying my own daily bike commute to work :) -Peter

    Good Job for those who implement an eco-friendly way of traveling around. I knew the feeling of safety and joyfulness when riding a bicycle and that is essential.
