Minnesota Good For Bikers

The League of American Bicyclists says Minnesota is the fourth most bicycle friendly state.

That is up a slot from the last two years.

“Improving and expanding bicycling route options for commuter and recreational bicyclists provides a safe, efficient and enjoyable experience for everyone,” said Transportation Commissioner Tom Sorel.

The league increased Minnesota’s ranking because for several reasons, including the formation of the advocacy group Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, which increased the number of bicycle instructors.
