Hmm, cool. I dig Minn but just would not live there. I am a tad skeptical about the "best city" qualification during winter months. For that I would MUCH prefer Boulder or Portland....

I looked at this last year when Bicycling printed it. I didn't believe it then and I don't know. The article started out tongue in cheek talking about a class on thawing out a bottom bracket and if you have to thaw out your bottom bracket the weather is at least not bike friendly. And then some sites have whole different lists.

Notice most of the ones on this list wouldn't have to thaw a bottom bracket.

Wow, it is nice to know that I live in the state that has the top bike city. I live only 5-10 minutes away from Minneapolis. Minnesota is a great state to live in. Besides the horrible winters. We have great jobs and the nicest people here. Minnesota nice.
