Yesterday, the Cascade Bicycle Club released a scorecard (.pdf) ranking the 10 biggest cities in Puget Sound—excluding Seattle—based on a survey of their policies and plans to make bicycling a transportation priority.
Here are few highlights from the scorecard: The average percentage of bicycle commuters within the 10 cities is .5 percent—Redmond has the highest with 1.5 percent. Bellevue has an impressive 164 miles of bicycle routes in the works—and has dedicated funding to get them built. Tacoma has 165 miles of (presently unfunded) routes. Renton has a bicycle parking ordinance that mandates parking spaces for bikes account for 10 percent of the required off-street parking for residential developments with more than five units. Shoreline and Federal Way are apparently still learning how to ride a bike.
