"On the magazine's list of most improved cycling cities? New York City, Louisville Ky., and Washington, D.C. It also named Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Boston, Columbus, Ohio and Fargo-Moorehead, N.D. as future best cities.
Austin didn't make the list of top cities, but at least it didn't land in the list of worst cities for cycling, like Dallas did. Also on the worst list were Memphis and Miami.
'Dallas boasts a vibrant cycling community, but riding in and around the city requires nerves of steel,' the magazine wrote. 'Fast, multilane highways choked with traffic dominate the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metroplex, which some suspect might soon even sprawl over the Oklahoma border.'"
