2019 BICYCLE FRIENDLY STATE℠ RANKING
The Bicycle Friendly State ranking provides a ranking for all 50 states based on four public data sources and a Bicycle Friendly State survey that is answered by each state's Department of Transportation and/or a statewide bicycle advocacy organization.
The data analyzed for the Bicycle Friendly State ranking is organized into five categories. The chart below shows:
- Each state’s ranking for 2019,
- The number of Bicycle Friendly Actions taken by each state – these are actions that the League believes are key indicators of a state’s commitment to improving bicycling, and
- Each state’s grade in each of the five categories used in our analysis – these grades can help states, citizens, and advocates understand the relative strengths and weaknesses of their state relative to other states.
This chart shows all past rankings for each state. It is important to note that there was no 2016 or 2018 ranking and that changes to both the survey and its scoring rubric have occurred throughout the Bicycle Friendly State program’s history.
