IN Falls to Bottom Half in LAB’s 2009 List of Bicycle-Friendly States

Posted by Henry Scott on October 5, 2009

LAB_LogoReading the flyer (PDF) Danny Graber provided in his recent post to advertise Bicycle Indiana’s upcoming bicycle summit, I learned that Indiana has dropped five places to number 29 in the League of American Bicyclists’ list of bicycle-friendly states for 2009. If interested, here are links to complete rankings: 2009 and 2008. And, here’s a breakout showing 2009 rankings by category (PDF) — IN is disturbingly close to the bottom for infrastructure. On the one hand I’m pleasantly surprised to see we’re as high as we are overall, but am disappointed to see that we’re losing, rather than gaining ground relative to other states according to this assessment.
