Riding to Work By the Numbers

Where is bike commuting growing in the United States?

Each year, the League of American Bicyclists digs into the data to assess the state of bicycle commuting in cities across the country — and gives you a glimpse into how your community stacks up.

Here’s our analysis of the 2014 numbers.

Nationally, since 2005, states have seen, on average, a 46% increase in the share of people commuting by bike. But an average is just that – there are many states that have seen tremendous increases in cycling, including some that might not be expected. This map shows the growth in bicycle commuting for all 50 states from 2005 to 2014:
