Barcelona is a lovely city, and Spain is very cyclist friendly in my experience, but Bici aside, the bike lane infrastructure seemed rather limited compared to a lot of other European cities I've visited.
Oh, for the locals, don't forget to stop by the opening of ARTCRANK this weekend. It's at Shelter Studios this year in NE Mpls, after party at ONE ON ONE as per usual. Always a good time, last year was great.
Glad to see different cities getting this honor. Hopefully means that cars and bikes are starting to get along better in other cites around the country.
Sad to see Philly drop so low, 2009 was a bad year for cyclist in the city as a couple people on sidewalks got killed by knuckleheads riding on the sidewalk. Plus we had a lot of anti-bike press in the papers when they opened two new bike lanes on 23 bocks or so running between the two rivers in town, this ****ed a few car people off.
Again though Congats to your city, hopefully other towns can copy your car/bike friendship and bike friendly city planning.
