Davis is a Bicyclist’s Paradise

July 10th, 2013

In honor of Bike to Work Day and May is Bike Month, the good people at theatlanticities.com pulled together a list of America’s most bike-friendly neighborhoods. All rankings are based on the latest neighborhood-level data provided by Walk Score, a data service which measures walkability and Bike Score which measures an area’s bikeability).

Bike Score rankings are tiered into four categories:

Biker’s Paradise (90-100)
Very Bikeable (70-89)
Bikeable (50-69)
and Somewhat Bikeable (0-49)

A number of factors go into the algorithm which produces a Bike Score rating, including the presence of bike lanes, hills, destinations and road connectivity as well as bike sharing options.

America’s Top 25. Ranking more than 7,000 neighborhoods across the United States, Bike Score came up with America’s 25 most bikeable neighborhoods.

Davis captured the #1 spot, as well as 4 more spots in the top 14 of the list; no small feat as only 3.2 percent of the neighborhoods ranked as a Biker’s Paradise with scores of 90-100.  Davis has lead the way regarding a bike-friendly society as was referenced in this 2009 Wired article, What Makes A City Bike Friendly?
