Boston and Ann Arbor are more bike-friendly than DC?

Sorry, but you're going to need to back that up with a lot of evidence, because it runs very contrary to my experiences.

Also, notice how Boston's bike lanes don't actually correspond to the location of their bike commuters. For what it's worth, I also don't remember that many usable bike lanes in downtown Boston, and the road network there is generally pretty scary for cyclists. I think that their bikescore may be significantly overstated (although it must also be said that Boston has some of the most bike-friendly suburbs that I've seen)

The bike score also doesn't account for things like the weather, bicycle-friendly traffic laws, bicycle paring, bikesharing, good bike-transit links and infrastructure, availability of grade-separated bicycle facilities, ease/safety of biking on roads without bike lanes, etc.

DC excels on most of these in a way that few other cities can match.
