Illinois Ranked as a Top Ten Bicycle Friendly State
Source: Governor's Monthly Newsletter, illinois.gov -- May 2013
The League of American Bicyclists ranked Illinois 9th in their “Bicycle Friendly States” publication. This ranking is based on infrastructure and funding, education programs and enforcement of bicycle-friendly laws. Governor Quinn continues to work with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and other partners in developing new programs that encourage bicycling so Illinois remains a “Bicycle Friendly State.” IDOT recently launched an online web portal for the Illinois Bike Transportation Plan that addresses statewide and regional analysis of current accommodations, policies and planning documents for bicycling.
