Arizona is 3 out of 50 for bike-friendly states! It's about time we lead the country in something other than summer heat.

Tucson is a VERY bike-friendly city. You often pass or are forced to drive behind bicyclists on the streets. It's nice seeing people who are willing to use alternative transportation so that I can drive that much faster.

Can't believe Thousand Oaks, CA made that list. The place is a meat grinder for bicyclists.

Cambridge Mass. is very accessible to Bicycle commuters. It's a LOT better than its neighbor across the river (Boston) which isn't terrible eiher.

New York City has progressed a lot. I visited a few months ago for the first time in about 1.5 years and was amazed by the progress.

If you'd be willing to move out of the country, it's tough to beat any community in the Netherlands (Particularly Amsterdam). Paris, France has made strides as well.

Huh, GA is 49 out of 50. Sadly, I am not surprised.

Portland, Buffalo, and many more! Those are my two favorites.
