Even the best cities for bicycling didn’t start that way. Through decades of progress, these cities discovered how to tap into broad community support and gain the commitment of local leadership to build completely connected, comfortable networks of protected bikeways, trails and quiet neighborhood streets that allow people to travel safely on two wheels.
Since 2018, the PlacesForBikes City Ratings program has set a new standard in defining and measuring great places for biking. We use a data-driven approach to measure critical components of a community’s progress and then identify the best cities and towns for bicycling. This program helps city leaders pinpoint simple, low-cost improvements to make their city better for bikes.
