A national bicycling advocacy group has ranked the 50 states for cyclist friendliness. Their determination: Kentucky is not so bicycle-friendly. Kentucky ranked 47th in the U.S., according to the League of American Bicyclists. That's better than North Dakota, Alabama and New Mexico. (And worse than the rest.) Kentucky ranked poorly in almost all of the report's five categories—legislation/enforcement, policies/programs, infrastructure/funding and evaluation/planning. On education/encouragement, Kentucky got a middle ranking.
