Cycling in Dallas
There doesn’t seem to be a lot of love for cycling in Dallas, TX. In 2012, the city was named the worst city for cycling by Bicycling Magazine. The same magazine gave Dallas the same title once before. There wasn’t a single bike lane in the city in 2012, and it’s been having one of the lowest share of cyclists in the total number of commuters, only 0.2%. There’s still some hope for Dallas though, as the city’s number of cycling commuters has had a sharp rise, and the Dallas-Fort Worth “bicycle highway” will probably give the local cycling community some wind into their sails.
Best Biking shops in Dallas, TX
For all the bad reputation Dallas has as a bike unfriendly city, it has a surprising number of places where people can buy bikes. This is possibly due to the fact that the Northern Central region of Texas, to which the city belongs, has miles upon miles of great cycling trails and paths.
