Best bike city? Worst bike city? Elly Blue gives readers a roundup:

The surprise standout for me was Tucson. I predict it'll be the League of American Bicyclists' pick for No. 1 bicycling city in the next three years. They're doing it all, and they're getting it right. Major streets have been triaged with bike lanes and the city is building a network of state-of-the-art bike boulevards. Meanwhile, the county is spending millions on a 55-mile network of connected bike trails that are, like the ones in Minneapolis, designed for transportation, with two lanes and a separated walking path -- they're even building a new bridge in one place so there isn't a squeeze. And Tucson is blessed with an energetic bike culture that is extremely equity minded, from BICAS, the arts-focused bike project, to El Grupo, a road-riding group for Latino/a youth.
