West Virginia Improves Bike Ratings

Clark Davis

West Virginia is making slight progress in making the state more bicycle-friendly.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports West Virginia is 42nd in the nation, according to the League of American Bicyclists, which released its annual report Monday.

Last year's numbers indicated West Virginia was 44th and dead last in 2008 and 2011. West Virginia's 2015 rank is the highest the state has had, tied with its place in 2009.

The best state in the ranking is Washington, followed by Minnesota, Delaware, Massachusetts and Utah. The worst state is Alabama, followed by Kentucky, Kansas, Nebraska and Montana.

The League of American Bicyclists has put out a report each year since 2008.
