Davis is the preeminent cycling city in the USA. It was the first city in the country (in 1967) to install bike lanes on city streets, motivated by similar infrastructure in Holland. It presently has by far the highest cycling trip mode share in the USA, with about 22% of all trips accomplished by bicycle. There are more bike paths and lanes per capita in Davis than in any other US city, because for 50 years the city has insisted on bike friendly new development, maintaining connectivity to the existing infrastructure. Davis was named as the first Platinum Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists (LAB).
The largest employer in the city is the University of California, Davis, a public research university and one of the 10 campuses of the University of California system. It was recently named the most sustainable university in the world and enjoys an even higher bicycle use than the city at large, having also been named as a Platinum Bicycle Friendly University by the LAB.
