Last Auguest, the League of American Bicyclists published their lists of bicycle friendly states. Washington ranked number 1, Oregon was number 4, and California came in at number 7. Ranking dead last is West Virginia because of their "low bicycle usage rates and high cyclist crash and fatality rates," according to LAB director Andy Clarke.

Here in Georgia (#49) we say "BOO-YAH" to West Virginia ;-).
We are ranked way low, but there is still some mighty nice riding in Georgia. The City of Roswell has scored well and Decatur is good as well. Outside of a few pockets however, Atlanta's sprawl keeps the automobile on the throne. Outside of the cities, cycling isn't even in the backseat.
