Ride on: City employees take to their bikes

Many City employees bike to work, but did you know that some also bike at work?

Bike Week

Last week, City employees joined elected officials and community members for bicycle-friendly events throughout Bike Week including Bike to Work Day on the Hennepin County Government Plaza. As Bike Week came to a close, Minneapolis was recognized as the most bike-friendly city in the country, according to Redfin’s Walk Score.

Redfin looked at 154 cities and more than 10,000 neighborhoods to come up with the best places for bike riders in the United States. The overall scores given to cities factored in the number of bike lanes, hills, destinations and road connectivity, and the share of local workers’ commutes traveled by bicycle.

Here are the top five large cities that made the list as most bike-friendly:

  1. Minneapolis
  2. San Francisco
  3. Portland, Ore.
  4. Denver
  5. Boston
