Bicycling Mag Names NYC the Best City for Bicycling in America

Later this morning, DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg will join the editor and publisher of Bicycling to announce that New York now tops the magazine’s list of America’s best cities for biking . The news leaked in Portland , which owned the top spot for years and where the stagnation of city cycling rates is a major story, as early as last week, so I figured I would share my thoughts on this development ahead of the official decree.
Here they are in old-school blogger bullet point format (didn’t have time to turn this into a proper listicle):
We’ll have more coverage  from the Bicycling press event later today.
