2. Portland, Oregon, USA
Facebook fan Shani Lian Andreakis cast her vote for home turf: Portland, OR. Besides being bike-friendly in terms of infrastructure (bike lanes, parking spots, and city-wide cycling policies), Portland’s bike culture is pretty playful. There are bike-in movies (as opposed to, you know, drive-in flicks); the Portland Naked Bike Ride, which has had as many as 10,000 participants; zoobombing (Google it); and the annual Pedalpalooza, a three-week long festival dedicated to all things cycling.
