Bicycle Trends Shifting

This review of data on bicycling shows shifts in who is biking in America, and how often. A key shift: whites aren't the only ones on two wheels.

Eric de Place, a senior research at Sightline Institute, runs through the data on race and class in this post.

"Two big things stand out here for me: 1) white people remain somewhat overrepresented; but 2) bicycling appears to be trending toward racial parity. As of 2009, roughly 21 percent of all bike trips in the U.S. were made by people of color, and it looks as though U.S. cyclists may soon look pretty darn similar to the nation as a whole. "
