Bike Friendly Cities?

Bike lane

Found a link to a listing purporting to name the eleven most bicycle friendly cities in the world. Amsterdam is not so surprisingly listed at number one. But I was pretty shocked to find no less than four U.S. cities on the list, headed by Portland in number two, along with Davis, Boulder and San Francisco. I’d just have to say that it’s crap. Most every city here in the Netherlands that I’ve visited is more bike friendly than any city in the US – dedicated bike lanes, with dedicated bike traffic signals are a norm here, it seems. Don’t believe the hype! The U.S. has a long way to go – but I am proud that Portland is making strides.

The picture comes from another American city that is trying: Spartanburg, SC.
