In an infographic published by REI earlier this week, San Francisco was listed as one of the countries most “bike friendly” cities. As well as highlighting 6 cities with strong cycling populations, the graphic also provides some bike commuting tips and additional info.

Although a lot of the information isn’t particularly earth shattering (did you know cycling saves money on gas?) they still offer a nice reminder about the many benefits of biking to work. Plus, how many people would have guessed that “birding” ranks right behind cycling as America’s third favorite activity? Seriously.

In addition to San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, New York, and Washington DC round out the list of bike friendly cities.

The infographic is embedded below:
