The Top Bicycle-Friendly Cities in the World

European metropolises in the Netherlands and Denmark dominate the annual rankings of top bicycling cities, due mostly to major investment in cycling infrastructure. These cities' dedication to bicycling leads to major environmental, economic, and health benefits. American cities such as Minneapolis and Portland, Oregon, have made major infrastructure improvements in recent years.

There was a really terrific piece in The Guardian this week about bicycle-friendly cities, and it’s raised some interesting thoughts about how easy it is to create an urban area where two-wheeled commuters thrive.

The common refrain is one that applies just as well to bicycle infrastructure as it does to Kevin Costner and cornfields: If you build it, they will come.
