The Statistics of Cycling

If these facts don’t even make you consider getting out on a bike, I don’t know what will.

Stats from Bikes Belong:

-Bicycling brings more than $1 billion to the Colorado state economy

-Bicyclists in the northern Outer Banks region of North Carolina bring an estimated $60 million annually to the area’s economy, nearly nine times the one-time expenditure of $6.7 million of public funds to construct bicycle facilities in the region.

-The benefits of investments in cycle networks are estimated to be at least 4-5 times the costs, making such investments more beneficial to society than other transport alternatives.
