florida i believe has that 3' rule for cars passing bikes. we also have the stand your ground law. i wonder if those could be combined so you could shoot people that don't give cyclists proper room? it might bump us up a few notches.
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

Yeah, I'd have to disagree. I live in Albuquerque, NM and think it's a great place to ride. Not perfect though. I lived in Pittsburgh, PA and it was truly horrible. I grew up in New York (City and Suburbs), and thought it was somewhere in between.

Of course, these ranking can only rank certain things, at a certain time, and there will be regional differences within a state. For me, at least in the metro Albuquerque area there's good riding. Of course, this may not apply to other parts of the state. And the goat heads suck. Metro NYC had a million places to ride, and tons of people to ride with. It wasn't even all that dangerous. But in 14 years in NM, I haven't received the verbal abuse I'd get in a week in NY. Pittsburgh had great old neighborhoods, with lots of rugged terrain, but this meant very narrow roads used for heavy motor vehicle commuting, and although Pittsburghers weren't NY goons, they weren't exactly enthusiastic about cyclists either. The weather sucked too. I lived in Fort Collins, CO for a year, and it was pretty decent riding, but I was in grad school and didn't ride much.

KootnaMoots, your state dropped a place, but gained 10 points. Sounds positive to me.

Ben, I hope that the weather warms up before you arrive. I'm still regularly using multiple layers and shoe covers.
