Consider Bike Score When Buying a Los Angeles Home

ADDED ON May 22, 2017 0 COMMENTS

bike score when buy Los Angeles homeIf you are a home buyer, you’ve probably seen refence to a “Walk Score” for any property you are considering.   For example, look at homes for sale in Los Angeles and you will see the Walk Score® shown as a number between 0 and 100.  This number represents the “walkability” of an address.  The higher the number, the more you are able to walk to your desired destination – be it a restaurant, shopping, favorite activity, etc.  If less time in your car is a personal goal when buying a Los Angeles home, then knowing the Walk Score is very helpful.  There’s even a “Transit Score” that helps with commuting.

The latest to be introduced into this real estate valuation is the Bike Score.  According to the official website, the “Bike Score provides a 0-100 rating of the bikeability of a location based on the availability of bike infrastructure (lanes and trails), the hilliness of the area, destinations and road connectivity, and the number of bike commuters.”   The top ten large cities that have a high Bike Score are Minneapolis, Portland, San Francisco, Boston, Madison, Washington D.C., Seattle, Tucson, New York and Chicago.   Did you know that Minneapolis was named America’s #1 Bike City by Bicycling Magazine?
