CNN does a roundup that includes obvious leaders like Amsterdam and some less predictable choices like Chicago and Bogota, Colombia.

North American cities include Boulder, CO; Davis, CA; Chicago, IL; and Ottowa, Ontario:

Cape Town, South Africa is singled out for recent bike-friendly improvements.
