Bicycling Magazine: America’s Top 50 Bike-Friendly Cities

NYC_number8-PINP.jpg

Bicycling Magazine has ranked the US’s top 50 cycling-friendly cities and somehow NYC made it to the top 10. Coming in at number 8 is the city where cyclists are killed almost weekly with no charges ever filed at the driver. Remarkable. Sure, I guess bike lanes make your city friendly but I’ve ridden in some of those other cities on the list and NYC definitely doesn’t deserve a top 10 spot. One thing I will say about NYC is it’s one of the more accessible cities to explore by bike. It’s really a cyclo-tourist’s dream but the drivers, the NYPD and just about every other element is against us.

Was your city on the list?
