#BikeDC is de Nieuw US Bike City to Watch!

As someone who’s been riding in DC at varying levels of intensity since way back in ’96, this city’s transformation continues to amaze me. We still have a long way to go, as evidenced by the recent M Street Cycletrack woes, but the momentum is definitely in our favor.

Green Lane Project writes: “Last year, the new estimates found, DC jumped past San Francisco and Seattle to become the nation’s No. 3 city for bike commuting. Since 2007, the District has added about 9,000 net new regular bike commuters, almost as many as there are in all of Minneapolis, the No. 2 city. And all this despite having only a “Silver” rating from the League of American Biyclists’ widely respected rating of cities’ bike-friendliness. DC is the only major U.S. city that has sold more than 3 percent of its population on bike commuting without at least a “Gold” rating from the League.”
