I say San Francisco, CA has one of the most active bike communities here. This Thursday, 5/17/07 is gonna be a Bike-to-Work Day. From what I remembered last year, even the mayor biked to his office in City Hall. There are certain streets where bike activist had such a powerful voice as to add bike lanes and make the City more bike-friendly. There is now a phone #/website set up where one could petition to install one of those upside down U frames on the street where you can lock your bike on any commercial street. Also, everyday on the local commuter train, CalTrain, its jammed pack with bikers that sometimes if its a full train and you have your bike, you are out of luck and have to wait for the next one. Don’t know the percentage of bikers though.
