  1. Glad to see Albuquerque in there!

  2. Am surprised San DIego did not make the map. Bike lanes, views, hills and trails everywhere.

  3. This is a great list to have. Now I know where I can move to if I must ever leave this amazing town of Boulder. I must say, Boston is where I grew up and I did not find it the slightest bit bike friendly and in New York….well lets just say I saw 2 bikers get hit in 1 day! ouch!
