Missouri gets 'D' in cycling
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Missouri lags behind the rest of the nation when it comes to cycling and walking as a means of commuting.
That's according to the Missouri Bicycle Federation which just released its first annual "Bicycling and Walking in Missouri -- A Report Card."
It gave Missouri a "D," just in time for National Bike to Work Week.
David Henline commutes 42 miles round-trip to work every day. He'd give St. Louis a C+.
But he notes that he lives in an inner-ring suburb of St. Louis with lots of routes and sidewalks for pedestrians. He says he's educated about riding, and feels safe.
