      More Than 200,000 a Day Are Now Cycling

      By J. DAVID GOODMAN

      Build it and they will ride. That’s the message conveyed in the latest
      annual estimate of the number of bicyclists in New York City by
      Transportation Alternatives, which found roughly 236,000 New Yorkers
      riding each day in 2009, up 28 percent from 185,000 daily riders the
      year before.

      “More and better designed bike lanes, that’s clearly what’s fueling
      this growth,” said Wiley Norvell, a spokesman for the bicycling and
      pedestrian advocacy group, which has conducted an annual cycling
      estimate for nearly two decades.
