Then it was EasyRoommate.com's UK best-of list (er, Liverpool, Newcastle, Bristol... with London and Cambridge the two worst).

Of course, they're all wrong. Here's the Definitive Real Cycling List of the Top Five Places to Cycle in Britain:
1. Downhill, north of Perth 2. Carfrae, East Lothian 3. Beer, Devon 4. Sunnyside, West Sussex 5. Sloley, Norfolk
