San Francisco is right up there. It's home to a fanatical bicycling subculture. And once you know how to get across the city on mostly flat streets, the hills aren't much of an issue.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CLICK ON the link given in "Invincible"s post above, to see the list. It's more informative than just throwing out these random comments.

^^^ That ranking is two years old. A lot can change it that time. Walk Score's ratings, which are current, also provide actual scores (not just a listing): Most Bikeable Cities

LOL! Walkscore leaves off a park in my neighborhood that has been around for about 20 years.

Denver has had such a program for several years now; just recently started a satellite operation in Boulder.

However WalkScore uses city limit population for some reason, so Minneapolis is left out, despite beating Portland by like nine points.

Both major northwest cities are great for bicycling. Seattle and Portland both have incredible biking trails all over the city.
