The study found three groups of cyclists in the city, according to Kittelson & Associates Inc. which also performed the survey in other cities.

"The first type, which makes up only about .5 percent of the population, is "strong and fearless," and will bike regardless of road conditions. Then there are "enthused and confident" bikers, about 7 percent of residents, who are comfortable with the current bike network.
