For the eighth year in a row, Washington was named the most bicycle-friendly state in the country, while others like Massachusetts and Utah rose in the ranks thanks to policies and infrastructure funding strategies that encourage people to get on bicycles.
The League of American Bicyclists released its annual Bicycle Friendly State ranking on Monday to kick off the first day of National Bike to Work Week. The rankings are based on surveys completed by state transportation departments and bicycling advocates that assess progress in five categories: legislation and enforcement, policies and programs, infrastructure and funding, education and encouragement, and evaluation and planning.
