VIDEO: Somerville is Nation's 9th Best Bike City

A website named Somerville the ninth best bike city in the country. Cambridge was also on the list. We asked people what they felt about this.

A website called TheStreet, which primarily covers the stock market, recently named Somerville the ninth best bike city in the country. The city's student population, accessible squares and proximity to Boston, Cambridge and major bike paths were some of the reasons Somerville earned this honor, according to the website.

We asked people what they thought of bicycling in Somerville and what they felt about the city's ninth-place position on the list.

We also asked about the city that was ranked number five on the list: Cambridge.

Here's what people said.

By the way, here's the entire top ten list:

10. Madison, Wis.
9. Somerville, Mass.
8. Portland, Ore.
7. Gainsville, Fla.
6. Missoula, Mont.
5. Cambridge, Mass.
4. Berkeley, Calif.
3. Fort Collins, Colo.
2. Eugene, Ore.
1. Boulder, Colo.

It might drop a lot if the cops ever enforced traffic laws on bicycle riders. Instead, they choose to chase prostitutes! Who causes more damage?

The sidewalk cyclists have been endangering public safety all over the city for the past few years. Guess their flaunting of the local ordinance prohibiting such violations make Somerville a Best Bike City, eh? What unmitigated public relations BS!
