Salt Lake City’s investment in cycling infrastructure over the past year has shown results.
In a press release issued yesterday, it was reported that there was a 27 percent increase in the number of cyclists from 2010 to 2011. Improvements such as 50 lane miles of new on-road bikeways and additional sharrow lanes in the downtown area are indicated as part of the reason for the increase.
New York City, which has been heralded for its bicycle commuting, only saw a 14 percent increase during the same time.
