The number of Americans who bike to work jumped by about 60% since 2000, according to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau released Thursday.
Though nearly 90% of commuters still drive to work, the number of those biking grew the most over the past decade when compared to other types of transportation. The report found that men are slightly more likely to bike to work than women. Younger workers and those without children are also more likely to bike.
One reason for the spike in bike riding could be that cities are encouraging cyclists by creating bike lanes and bike-share programs.
