The criteria used were, oddly enough, those of the League of American Bicyclists, who of course work in one of the least bike-friendly countries on this battered earth, but they're generally worthy guidelines anyway.
Read the article here: Where Are the Most Bicycle-Friendly Cities in the World?, which rather oddly leaves out cities in Japan, where the BF staff has visited and ridden, and where we noted that bicycles were more thoroughly integrated into daily life than even in Holland.
And for you impatient ones, here's the list:
- Portland, Oregon
- Boulder, Colorado
- Davis, California
- Sandnes, Norway
- Tronheim, Norway
- San Francisco, California
- Basel, Switzerland
Still, we are seeing more bikes every day as we pedal around town, and as we've said before, if it can happen here, at Ground Zero of Carmageddon, it can happen anywhere!
