The awesome guys at Walk Score have teamed up with researchers at UBC to introduce their newest mapping project – Bike Score.

Victoria, Vancouver and Montreal rate highest in bikeability for Canadian cities; while Minneapolis, Portland and San Francisco lead in the U.S.

Vancouver’s Bike Score is already pretty good, especially in downtown and in the nearby neighbourhoods. We have a much larger network of bike routes than most Canadian cities. Some of the gaps in the network will be plugged by the recently announced 2012 capital plan improvements, including 3 new bike lanes in south Vancouver.
