On the heels of Bicycling Magazine's best biking cities rankings, Bike League has issued it's 2014 state rankings in which Maryland came in 7th, Virginia came in 18th and Washington, DC is still not a state.
That's Maryland's highest ranking ever, but Viriginia has been ranked as high as 13th in the past. Washington, the Edwin Moses of bike league ranking, came in 1st again. Alabama came in last.
Both states did badly on infrastructure and funding, but Maryland got the highest score on education and encouragement.
