Cdn city most bike-friendly is…

Montreal has placed among the top 10 in a survey of the world’s most bike-friendly cities, earning the highest ranking of any metropolis in North America.

The Danish firm Copenhagenize Consulting recently released its list of the top 20 bicycle-friendly cities in the world for 2011. The “Copenhagenize Index” as it’s called, puts Amsterdam in the #1 spot, scoring 54 out of a possible maximum score of 64, with Copenhagen itself placing second with a score of 52.

Montreal was the only Canadian city to make the list. Toronto’s current political climate and lack of on-street bicycle infrastructure keeps it off the list, and Vancouver’s “sporty” bicycle culture and mandatory helmet law + lack of bike sharing keeps it off the list.
