2022 BFS Report Card Intro
2022 BICYCLE FRIENDLY STATE REPORT CARDS
The 2022 Bicycle Friendly State ranking includes a ranking of each state, but crucially also includes a report card.
In each report card you will find:
- Feedback based on survey data and suggestions from state advocates and agencies. This section recognizes progress made and important steps that can be taken by the state to improve bicycling.
- Our 5 Bicycle Friendly Actions and whether each state has taken them. Each of the 5 Bicycle Friendly Actions is an action that the League of American Bicyclists believes EVERY state should take.
- Federal data indicators on bicycle use, safety, and federal funding used for biking and walking. Although not ideal, this data is the best data that is available nationwide for state-by-state comparisons of current conditions.
- Grades for each of the 5 categories of questions in our Bicycle Friendly State survey and each sub-category in our survey. These grades are meant to help people identify areas for improvement in their state. The underlying questions can be found in the Bicycle Friendly State survey.
We hope that these report cards can be useful for advocates, policymakers, agency staff, and the public as they seek to make bicycling safer, more comfortable, and more accessible. These report cards cannot capture everything every state is doing and we welcome feedback that helps us support improvements in every state. Please contact Ken McLeod at email@example.com if you would like to know more about questions, answers, and grading.
Each report card is listed below in the order of each state’s 2022 Bicycle Friendly State ranking. The data presented on the report card is explained in our Guide to the Bicycle Friendly State Report Card. If you have questions that are not answered by the Guide then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
