Biking to Work Up 60% in Last Decade

Bike(CNN) — Have you noticed more cyclists on the road lately?

A report from the U.S. Census Bureau says the number of people biking to work has increased about 60 percent over the last decade.

A 2008 to 2012 survey found about 786,000 Americans said they biked to work. That’s up from the 488,000 who said the same in 2000.

Cyclists still only account for less than 1 percent of all commuters.

The report’s author says more cities are investing in bike lanes and bike share programs to make commuting more cyclist-friendly.
