Washington Remains Most Bicycling-Friendly

May 28th, 2009 by ed friedrich

Washington has been rated by the league of American Bicyclists as the nation’s No. 1 bicycle-friendly state for the second year in a row.

The Bicycle Friendly State Program recognizes states that actively support bicycling as a way of addressing climate change, traffic congestion, obesity and high fuel prices. States are rated based on their support of bicycling through legislation, policies and programs, education, places to ride and planning.

    Not with the road infrastructure we have in Washington, amd especially in Kitsap. I was a daily bicycle commuter in Chicago, for years, and felt far safer than riding anywhere in Washington. Since arriving here, nineteen years ago, my bikes have been largely collecting dust.
