America's Most Bikeable Neighborhoods

America's Most Bikeable Neighborhoods | Healthy Homes Eco-Thresholds Initiative | Scoop.it

'In honor of Bike to Work Day, we pulled together a list of America's most bike-friendly neighborhoods.'

The neighborhood rankings below are based on the latest neighborhood-level data provided to us by Walk Score (Walk Score measures walkability, Bike Score measures bikeability).

 

Bike Score places neighborhoods and cities into four categories based on a 100-point score (ranked on bike lanes, hills, destinations and road connectivity, and bike commuting mode share): Biker's Paradise (90-10), Very Bikeable (70-89), Bikeable (50-69), and Somewhat Bikeable (0-49). The data here cover more than 7,000 neighborhoods across the United States and the table at the article link shows America's 25 most bikeable neighborhoods.
