Recent researches have revealed that several of the largest cities in the country have been making it easier for bicyclists to ride their bicycles to go places, but what U.S. cities are the most bike-friendly?
The answer may depend on several factors including the existence of city-owned bike racks, the creation of divided bike lanes and the presence of bike boulevards among other things. What polls can state clearly regardless of the implementation of such bicycle friendly facilitators is what cities in North America bicycles are commonly used as the main means of transportation on a regular basis. According to a recent study, Portland, Oregon beat all other cities major cities. It has been found that at least 3.9% of all Portland residents do all of their commutes by bike, making the city the number one bike city in the country.
The study has also demonstrated that New York failed to make the top five bike cities in North America, being beat by Minneapolis, Vancouver, San Francisco, Toronto, Washington D.C. and Chicago.
Since more residents across the nation have been opting to ride their bicycles instead of driving their cars to work, these numbers may change soon and a boom in the use of bicycles all across the continent should be noticed in the future.
