Missouri gets (gasp!) a good grade for cycling

Last year, when the Missouri Bicycle Federation crunched the numbers on how friendly our roads and policies are toward walking and cycling, they gave the Show Me State a big, fat D.

But a report released last week shows we’re starting to shed our status as one of the slowest kids in the class when it comes to people-powered transportation.

Every year, the League of American Bicyclists ranks the states for bike-friendliness. In 2008, Missouri came in 28th. In 2009, we shot up the charts in dramatic fashion.
