There’s not much one can say against the humble bicycle. As a means of transportation, it’s affordable, accessible and, on small distances, even quicker than the car or public transit (especially as the congestion problem grows in many cities).

However, some cities are better primed than others to spin their way toward a green future. With that in mind, we analyzed various factors from infrastructure to weather, traffic safety and more to unveil the top 20 most bike-friendly U.S. cities for commuters.
