This probably won't come as a surprise to anyone who tries get around the city by bicycle, but, yup, Dallas sucks for you. That's according to the June issue of, d'uh, Bicycling, which ranks the best and worst cities for cyclists. Says the list, which ain't up yet, Dallas joins Memphis and Miami as bad cities in which to get 'round via two wheels -- 'cause they're "devoid of bike lanes and ruled by cars," no shit. Not that the city ain't trying to do better. It's just, ya know, a little familiar. --Robert Wilonsky
