More and more people realize that bicycles can be much more useful than cars. A bicycle is cheap and in a city sometimes, considering the traffic jams, even faster than a car. Bikes are ecological and also keep their owners in good health. Bicycles are often a favorite means of transport for travelers exploring their destination. This is why several cities, such as Vienna or London, decided to provide rent-a-bike services, where you rent a bike and then return it in other part of the city. Tourism-Review.com brings you the top 5 most bicycle friendly cities in the world according to Askmen.com.

Bogota is NOT cycling friendly. The traffic is terrible and crazy, and though some arteries have bike lanes they are NOT respected and generally are on sidewalk areas requiring you to ride over curbs. Only one day a week, when they close some roads on Sunday, do I cycle. Bogota motorists would just as soon run you down as let you through an intersection.
