Chicago has taken home the title as the friendliest city for bicycling in America.

CBS Chicago reports the city was named the #1 bike-friendly city in America by a leading industry publication.

Chicago’s growing network of protected bike lanes, and its expansion of the Divvy bike sharing program into lower income neighborhoods on the South and West sides helped vault it to the top ranking.

According to the mayor’s office, the city has created 50 miles of bike lanes since 2011, and the mayor is working to create 50 more.
