While not tops in the nation, Maryland and Virginia are by and large more bike-friendly than their regional neighbors.

Maryland and Delaware are among the nation's most bike-friendly states, according to new rankings by the League of American Bicyclists.

Maryland ranked eighth and Delaware 10th in the rankings released Tuesday. Washington retained the top spot, followed by Minnesota and Massachusetts.

The league said Maryland ranked third in the Northeast and credited the state for establishing the Cycle Maryland program to promote bicycle commuting and tourism. The bicycling group also credited Delaware for dedicating state funding to bicycle projects and said the partnership between the state and Bike Delaware, a statewide advocacy group, is a model for other states.

Virginia came in 17th in the nationwide rankings, but was tops in the South.
