In Atlanta, the share of bicycle commuters to the total city population rose from .51% to 1.08% from ’08 to ’09, an 111% increase. This was in line with the key takeaway from the League’s analysis that cities with the fewest bike amenities saw the largest year-to-year growth this past year.
Still, Atlanta’s numbers are impressive. That 111% increase propelled the city from a rank of 39th in % of bike commuters in 2008 to 22nd in 2009.
Lain, who also forwarded the study, notes that it’s sort of shocking that Atlanta’s % of bike commuters was almost the same as the city of Chicago, where 1.15% of commuters bike to work.
Of course, it had everything to do with our recent issue about cycling in Atlanta. Yep. (OK, so the data covers a time period before our cycling issue came out, but humor me here.)
