Sure, it's easy to find brilliant bike infrastructure projects in Northern Europe. But when it comes to accommodating the growing interest in cycling, even some American cities are leading the charge - contrary to what some may think.

In Goodyear's list of progressive infrastructure projects, three projects from the United States and China are highlighted, along with seven from European environs. Davis, California's bike tunnels, New York City's Sands Street cycle track, and Guangzhou's seamlessly integrated bike-share and BRT systems all made the cut.

Have more suggestions? Goodyear is looking for contributions for a future roundup.
