Alameda is among the 291 most bike-friendly communities in the United States, according to rankings released last week by The League of American Bicyclists.
Alameda received bronze status from the league for 2013, the same ranking as last year.
The league rates cities for five contributions to bicycle friendliness: creating safe and convenient places to ride; providing education for new and less experienced cyclists; creating a strong bike culture; ensuring safe roads for biking; and planning for bicycling as a safe and viable transportation option.
