Commuter Cycling

Commuter Cycling is back in the U.S. As they said in "Field of Dreams": If you build it, they will come!

“This growth is real,” said Wiley Norvell, a spokesman for Transportation Alternatives, the leading advocacy group for cyclists and pedestrians in New York City. “It’s born out by what I see on the streets every day, and we’re reaping the rewards from the city’s investment in bicycling over the last several years. More and better-designed bike lanes are producing more cyclists and more first-time cyclists.”

Since 2007, 140 miles of new bicycle routes have been added to the on-street bicycle network.
