I’m going to have to say Portland, Oregon which has a network of bike paths that pretty much connect the whole city. They also have the Create-a-Commuter program, providing low-income adults with bikes for commuting.
The League of American Bicyclists’ Bicycle Friendly America program ranks Boulder CO, Davis CA and Portland OR as platinum communities. More than 100 communities get some level of recognizition. For the full report go to http://www.bikeleague.org/programs/bicyclefriendlyamerica/bicyclefriendlyyearbook/index.php and download the Bicycle Friendly America Yearbook.
While Portland, Oregon is sometimes cited as the best biking city, Minneapolis is cited as the best biking city in many places, including Bicycle.com (attached).
Bicycling Magazine recently released a list with the 50 best cities to bike in. The first city was Minneapolis, Minnesota. They based the list on many factors including: segregated bike lanes, municipal bike racks, bike boulevards, cyclist involvement in local government, a vibrant and diverse bike culture, and smart savvy bike shops. They also accounted for geographic diversity so California would not dominate the list.
