Urban Cycling / top bicycle-friendly cities and towns

I live in St. Paul, moved from bicycle-friendly town and rural Iowa in '91. Recent St. Paul Pioneer Press articles are noting that the increased use of bikes is accompanied by car-bike accidents.  Several bike riders have been killed in the past three months in the Mpls-St. Paul area.  Most recent death was a woman biking in the afternoon on broad Summit Avenue. Clearly bike riders and car drivers need to ramp up their safe behavior and attentiveness.  As an example, bicyclists blowing through stop signs is the rule here. Better planning for bike traffic is needed, too.
