America’s Top 10 Bike-Commuting Cities

Save on gas and squeeze in a workout by using one of these bike-share options to get to work.

Portland has long been one of America’s most bike-friendly cities (Men’s Fitness ranked it “Fittest City” this year, for good reason). According to the 2011 American Communities Survey, more than 17,000 commuters cycle to the office. It doesn’t have a bike-share program yet, but one is on the way. Alta Bicycle Share will launch Portland Bike Share in spring 2014. In the meantime, Portland is still ideal for any cycling commuter. With 328 miles of lanes, off-street paths, and trails already in place, the City of Portland’s Bicycle Plan passed in 2010 promises bikeway expansion to 630 miles by 2016 and 962 miles by 2030.
