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.
