Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Pennsylvania Ranks #15 As A Bicycle Friendly State

"Pennsylvania’s #15 ranking was based on a number of key indicators, including infrastructure and funding that provide on-the-ground bicycle facilities; education and encourage programs that promote cycling; and passage and enforcement of bicycle-friendly laws that make it safe and comfortable for people of all ages to ride.

Pennsylvania has made strides in the past year that boosted our ranking from 25 in 2011 to 15 in 2012. The passage of the Four Foot Passing Law has been the most significant accomplishment over the past year. Pennsylvania continues to advance projects that make bicycling more accessible to more people. We have seen a significant investment in the Southeast to increase the trail mileage and complete many of the region’s trunk line trails. Statewide, advocacy is working. Our message is being heard by legislators, and we have been involved with discussions centered on a comprehensive transportation funding reform package."
