The Most Bicycle-Friendly Cities

The League of American Bicyclists has released their Spring 2009 list of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the U.S. Davis, CA is one of only three cities given Platinum status, along with Portland, OR and Boulder, CO.

From the press release:

"The League is recognizing 13 new Bicycle Friendly Communities and three BFC renewals. Notably, five states have their first BFC designations – Cedar Falls, Iowa; Columbia, Mo.; Tulsa, Okla.; Columbus, Ohio; and Philadelphia, Pa. Philadelphia and Columbus add to the League's roster of metropolitan cities east of the Mississippi River to become a BFC, proving that the nation – not just the west coast – is growing increasingly aware of the benefits of becoming more bicycle-friendly. 'It was very encouraging to have five new states represented, some big cities east of the Mississippi, and a significant improvement in responses to enforcement and planning questions,' said League President Andy Clarke."
