2015 Rankings List Most ‘Bicycle Friendly’ U.S. States
The League of American Bicyclists ranked the most and least bike friendly states in the US.
Washington and Minnesota took the top two most friendly positions, while Alabama ranked the least bike friendly.
The league’s rankings are based on a range of criteria that reward areas such as new policies, advocacy, legal protections and infrastructure. The league also issues a “report card” for each state, including a feedback section. One common suggestion: “Adopt a statewide, all-ages cell phone ban to combat distracted driving and increase safety for everyone.”by
