Top 50 Bike-Friendly Cities
 The list, which only considers cities with populations of 100,000 or
more, bases its selection on the availability of segregated bike lanes,
municipal bike racks and bike boulevards, to name a few.
 Cities must also support a vibrant and diverse bike culture and must
have smart, savvy bike shops.
