I haven't lived there, from what I've seen on my time there, Grand Rapids, Michigan has to be one of the most underrated.

The city itself has a tremendous amount of bike lanes and they are well-engineered and take you anywhere in the city. The main reason that its exemplary, however is because of the rail trails.

One of the trails, the White Pine Trail, takes you 90 miles straight north.  A huge section in the middle that was almost unusable,  just got paved two years ago. This trail connects to the Pere Marquette Trail which will get you east almost to Lake Huron. Another rail trail takes you west to the big lake, then north another 50 miles with just a few mile clip on the road. And finally, just outside GR is another trail that gets you like 45 miles east.
