UPDATES FOR THE 2021 CITY RATINGS
COMING SOON
The PlacesForBikes City Ratings program is a data-driven approach to evaluate, identify and compare the best global cities and towns for bicycling.
ANALYZES HUNDREDS 
OF CITIES

Using a variety of data sources, we analyze hundreds of cities
worldwide to evaluate and rank the best cities for bikes.

STUDIES WHAT MAKES GREAT CITIES FOR BIKES

From the information we gather from City Ratings, we study the common factors that make a city or town great for biking.

PROVIDES ACTIONABLE 
INSIGHTS FOR OTHER CITIES

We create a comprehensive list of strategies to educate city leaders + decision makers on how to make their cities better for bikes.
