ABQ named among best bicycling cities

ABQ Ranked as a top bike city

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque has just been named one of the best bicycling cities in the US.

Bicycling Magazine’s October issue, which hit newsstands Tuesday, ranks Albuquerque as number 39 out of 50 top cities in the nation.

Some of the factors taken into consideration when selecting the country’s best bike cities are the cycling infrastructure including protected bike lanes, as well as the overall percentage of bike commuters and their rate of growth.

The top cities on this list were Portland, Long Beach, Denver, and Boston. The worst was Suffolk County in New York, which has consistently ranked as one of the most dangerous places in the country to ride a bicycle.
