PeopleForBikes Wants Your Help to Rate Cities on Cycling

How well does your city work for bicycling? PeopleForBikes wants you to weigh in for a new city ranking that will be released in the fall.

The PeopleForBikes survey asks locals to dish on how terrific or terrifying it is to get around their city on two wheels. Questions seek to gauge progress on the bike network and the commitment of local officials to improving conditions for cycling, well as topics like the quality of mountain biking amenities or bike education resources.

The survey is open through April 15. As an additional enticement, the organization is giving out a Trek bike to one lucky participant.

Final rankings will combine the survey responses with cycling data and a new tool from PeopleForBikes that measures bike network connectivity.

PeopleForBikes President Tim Blumenthal said in a statement he hopes the project will "generate a bit of friendly competition to speed the development of more and better biking everywhere.”
