These are the safest and most dangerous US states for cyclists

The number of US cycling fatalities has hit a multi-decade high with on average 19 people getting killed while riding a bike every single week. This troubling trend is in line with all traffic fatalities nationally which, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)has seen a 10.5% increase since 2020, and bicycle fatalities make up ‘just’ 2% of those traffic deaths.

But not all states are contributing to this deadly figure. A new report analyzed ten years of NHTSA date to find out which US states had the lowest percentage of cyclist deaths compared to its population.
