Wouldn’t it be great if suddenly the “big decision makers” here in the U.S.A. decided to follow the European models of common sense? Imagine, seeing a U.S. city name make the list… yeah, probably never going to happen. :rolleyes:

Yeah, it'll never happen since the development of the automobile is almost parallel with American history. European cities were created when feet and horses were the only options so being bike friendly is no stretch for them.

I like the political willpower the mayor of Indianapolis has exhibited expanding the city's bike lanes from nearly nothing to something like 60mi currently and a goal of 200mi in the next couple of years.

Some of the smaller suburbs are farther along on building out networks of bike lanes and paths.

I sure would like to see what it is that gets all these European cities on the list. I did read in there about protected bike lanes, and we don't really have those. We do have separated two-way MUP's, but they are handled by the parks dept and it sounds like they are also not preferred by the article writers.
