In a surprising choice, the May edition of Bicycling
Magazine
named Minneapolis America’s best city for biking. The
city still trails Portland, Oregon in the percentage of commuters who
bike to work (4.3 percent to 5.9 percent, respectively, according to the
most recent American Community Survey), but Minneapolis has been
gaining momentum.

Next month, Minneapolis will launch the largest
bike-share program
in the country, building on a strong
foundation of extensive bike trails and a thriving bicycling community.
 They're also using federal funds to double the mileage of on-street
bike lanes, build more road diets, introduce bicycle boulevards, and
more. Have a look and see how Minneapolis has shot to the top of
America's best bicycling cities.
