New York City's Bike Count is Up 289% Since 2001!

NYC's Bike Count has Doubled Since 2007

New York City has become much more bike-friendly over the past decade, and despite some bumps in the road, momentum seems to have increased over 2011. As our friends from StreetFilms point out in the video montage above (with heroic music!), the bike count in NYC is up almost 3X since 2001, and it has doubled since 2007. Public opinion surveys show that support by new yorkers for more bike lanes is increasing, and the data shows that pedestrians are safer where there are bike lanes. All of this is worth celebrating! Let's keep going and make even more progress in 2012!
