<center>The World's Top Biking Cities</center>
This year, the Bicycle Friendly America Yearbook named Washington the number one state for cyclists. Seattle’s ambitious new bicycle master plan, which weighed heavily toward Washington’s win, is chock-full of initiatives, including painting green bike lanes on city streets; corrals for locking up bikes in the city; and community outreach programs to increase ridership. Volunteer “bicycle ambassadors” will lead neighborhood clinics and participate in special events, such as low-cost helmet sales. The end result will be a 455-mile network that puts 95 percent of Seattle’s residents within a quarter-mile of a bike lane or facility.
