PeopleForBikes has released its third annual ratings of the best cities for bicycling in the U.S. The City of Rogers ranked 6th overall out of 567 cities this year.
The PeopleForBikes City Ratings program is a data-driven analysis that evaluates more than 550 cities and towns and shows city leaders how they can invest to make bicycling better for all residents and visitors. City Ratings are scored across five key indicators: Ridership (how many people are riding bikes), Safety (how safe is it to ride bikes), Network (how easy is it for people to bike where they want to go), Reach (how well the network serves all parts of the community), and Acceleration (how fast the community is working to improve biking).
The City of Rogers performed well in the Acceleration, Safety and Reach categories. The full ratings for all cities are available at https://cityratings.peopleforbikes.org/.
