The League of American Bicyclists has released its 2012 list of bicycle-friendly communities where city leaders have developed bike lanes, placed bike racks in urban locations and developed safe-riding education programs for bicyclists of all ages.
To qualify, cities also must have adopted policies to encourage biking to work or school in an effort to improve sustainability and reduce road congestion.
Only three cities made the organization’s Platinum List: Boulder, Colo., Davis, Calif., and Portland, Ore.
GOLD: Madison, WI
Madison even has a bike-share program!
