I got my acceptance to NYU this afternoon, so I seriously have to start considering where I want to go to college. No matter where I go I'll be in NYC, Washington, Boston, or Montreal.
The problem is, I've only ever biked in the (so-called) biker's heaven of Portland, and I have no idea what to expect in a new city. By stereotypes, I'll get killed in NYC or freeze to death in Montreal, and that is about all I know about these places (as far as biking goes.)
Biking convenience isn't going to be THE deciding factor, but it will play into my final decision, so I'm wondering if anyone can give me an idea of what to expect (biking-wise) in any of these cities, especially coming from Portland (where the streets are paved with disused NJS parts)
