Bicycle Friendly States
The Bicycle Friendly State program is designed to establish best practices — we know every state has great riding opportunities, but states can take different actions to help improve the safety, comfort, and accessibility of bicycling.
The Bicycle Friendly State program includes a ranking of all 50 states based upon policies, programs, and other public agency efforts to create great bicycling in each state.
We are able to create this ranking thanks to the cooperation of staff at each state's Department of Transportation, who provide a wealth of information by completing our Bicycle Friendly State (BFS) survey. However, our ranking seeks to communicate general state efforts, including many state efforts that go beyond state Departments of Transportation, as well as the current state of bicycling based upon available data.
