It's no secret to people that live in Minnesota and Wisconsin that both states offer plenty of bicycle opportunities for road/trail style and mountain bike riders. That said, how do they rank compared to the rest of the country?

Using key metrics like bike-friendly legislation, political support, trails/other infrastructure, and bike education, Minnesota posted a score of 63 out of 100 possible points, and Wisconsin posted a 52 out of 100.
