Traffic.

Parking.

Road Rage.

These are all things you have to deal with while driving in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, or any of California’s other major cities.

Not to mention that sitting in a car for two hours during your morning and afternoon commute isn’t doing any favors for your health. We all need to get up and move more, which is why an increasing number of people are choosing to commute by bike.

If you’d rather live your life on two wheels instead of four, it’s important to relocate to a city that makes biking safe and easy.

The long-distance moving experts at Out of the Box Moving Solutions have put together a short list of some of the most bike-friendly cities in the country. What makes them bike-friendly? Criteria includes number of designated bike lanes, popularity of cycling as a mode of transport, availability of cycling resources, and efforts by government to support cycler safety.

Now, without further ado, here are 10 of the best cities for people who love to bike:

  1. Missoula, Montana
  2. Louisville, Kentucky
  3. New York, New York
  4. Tucson, Arizona
  5. San Francisco, California
  6. Seattle, Washington
  7. Eugene, Oregon
  8. Denver, Colorado
  9. Minneapolis, Minnesota
  10. Portland, Oregon

We can’t help but notice that many of these bike-loving cities are also among the fastest-growing cities in America. Coincidence? Maybe. But it’s certainly true that biking both for pleasure and commuting has become more popular in the past few years.
