MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) _ A new set of national rankings finds New England to be a relatively bike-friendly region, with five of the region’s six states scoring in the top half among states nationwide.

The League of American Bicyclists ranked Massachusetts third, behind Washington state and Minnesota, based on factors like enforcement of bike safety laws, infrastructure, public education and encouragement for cycling.

Maine ranked ninth, Vermont 18th, Connecticut was 20th and New Hampshire came in 22nd. Rhode Island was last in the region, ranking 39th nationally.
