Pedal To The Medal — Washington’s One on Two Wheels — Dave’s Diary

It’s time to break out the bicycle and join the parade! For the seventh consecutive year, Washington has been named the nation’s No. 1 “Bicycle-Friendly State” by the League of American Bicyclists. Check out the official press release from bicyclist in chief, Gov. Jay Inslee:

“As a bike rider I get to see firsthand all that Washington has done to make bicycling part of a sustainable transportation system,” Inslee said. “Bicycling helps make healthy communities, healthy people and a rich quality of life.  There’s always more to do, but being named the most bike friendly state shows we are moving on the right path.”

The Washington State Department of Transportation supports bicycling through its Bicycle and Pedestrian programs and provides transportation design guidance, grant programs and technical support.

Washington state will officially celebrate Bike Month in May with a signed proclamation by Gov. Inslee describing the many benefits of bicycling.

The League of American Bicyclists annually ranks all 50 states on how “bikeable” they are. The League evaluates each state’s cycling success in several categories: legislation and enforcement; policies and programs; infrastructure and funding; education and encouragement; and evaluation and planning.
