WA state was ranked by the League of American Bicyclists as the top state in the nation for bicycle friendliness. The “friendliness” refers to the state’s commitment to promotion of cycling through legislation, policies, and programs for bicycles. It also accounts for the creation of new places to ride, education of motorists and cyclists, and encouraging people to use bicycles for commuting and playing. The announcement is part of the League’s kick off to National Bike to Work Week. So… for those of us in Washington, let’s show off that new medal by rolling it on two wheels to get to work this week! If you are in Olympia, a great way to do this is to get involved with Intercity Transit’s Bike Commuter Contest. I have packets of information/registration materials in the office… it’s not too late!
