It’s mostly European cities that are explicitely known for their bike friendliness. Cycleur de Luxe would like to point out the 5 most bike friendly cities in the United States. Find out where the streets are the most adapted and safe for cyclists! A big thank you goes out from Cycleur de Luxe to…
#1 Minneapolis, Minn.
The city of Minneapolis has recently invested a lot in the expansion of its cycling infrastructure: it has a wide network of adapted bike lanes.
#2 Portland, Ore.
Portland likes to call itself “Bike City, USA” sometimes but it is indeed well recognized for the effort put in to support a bike friendly community. Bike lockers, public bike rentals, free safety information, free maps for cycling tourists… Portland has it all.
#3 San Francisco, Calif.
San Francisco provides more than 200 miles of “bike boulevards”, raised lanes and low-traffic streets for cyclists. Many bike racks and garages are provided for commuters throughout the city, and locals have access to a bike sharing program as well.
#4 New York City, N.Y.
Over 250,000 New Yorkers commute to work by bike every day on over 250 miles of dedicated bike lanes! Not to mention all recreational use of the two-weeler.
#5 Detroit, Mich.
Detroit is building dedicated bike lanes around the city’s monuments and other heavily trafficked areas, ensuring safety and easy transport for cyclists and tourists by bike.
