Cambridge Tops List as America's Best Bike City

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (May 18, 2015) – Typically reports on America's best bike cities list such locales as Davis, Calif., Boulder, Colo., and Portland, Ore. According to a new scoring system used by a real estate marketing think tank Cambridge, Mass., beat them all.

The Redfin Research Center recently issued a report that ranked Cambridge as the top city in the U.S. Scoring 92.8 the Massachusetts city came in well above Davis, Berkeley, Boulder and Santa Cruz, which finished second through fifth respectively.

“This is a great recognition of the hard work done by Cara Seiderman, the Transportation Program Manager in Cambridge, over the past 20 years,” said Richard Fries, Executive Director of MassBike. “That city has been leading the entire state for a long time and rarely gets mentioned alongside other cities in the Western U.S. With the additional support of local advocates such as the Livable Streets Alliance, the Boston Cyclists Union and our work here at MassBike, Cambridge is overdue for this acknowledgment.”

Two other Massachusetts cities scored in the top 100. Boston ranked 24th and Northampton came in at number 29.
