Cycling doubled in US during last 10 years, with young people, low income riders leading the way
A new US study shows cycling has doubled in the United States during the last 10 years, with people of colour, low income riders and young people leading the way.
The report, called Pedalling Toward Equity and released by the Sierra Club and the League of American Bicyclists, shows 89 percent of young people have a favourable view of cycling and would like safer cycling infrastructure in their community.
These future voters are driving the shift toward cycling overall, and highlighting the need for cycling investment in communities that planners often overlook.
