Biking To Work – Who Needs A Car?

Did you know that Americans collectively make 4 billion trips by bike each year, up from 1.7 billion in 2001?

While driving is still most Americans’ primary means of getting to and from work every day, cycling is gaining ground as an option in more and more cities across the United States, and it’s not hard to see why. Whether it is because it has gotten safer, is cheaper, is a form of exercise, or because it is good for the environment, the trend is growing.

We invite you to view this infographic from Bolt Insurance which illustrates this.

Here are a few facts from the graphic:

  • 4 in 10: Ride bikes for work, pleasure or exercise
  • 21%: Cycling fatalities declined between 1998 and 2008
  • Portland: No. 1 state with nearly 6% of people biking to work
  • 76%: How most people get to work – they drive alone
