Las Angeles recieved an honorable mention from the League of American Bicyclists. It seems that Orange County and Las Angeles are making a push to be more bike friendly. Minneapolis MN, Boulder, CO and Portland OR are consistently ranked at the top of the list.
Minneapolis, MN was ranked #1 by bicycling.com. Portland, OR and Boulder, CO followed taking ranks #2 and #3. On their list of the top 50 cities, Los Angeles did not place. This list was determined in 2010.
From my own personal experience, biking in Los Angeles is scary. People drive really fast and crazy, and a lot of the drivers don’t have respect for pedestrians. There are certain beach communities that have great bike routes, such as Santa Monica, but downtown and inland Los Angeles aren’t the most bike friendly. Also, breathing in car exhaust isn’t the best thing for your lungs either.
