      Bike Commuting Gains New Recruits In 1990s

      MAY 30, 2002 -- WASHINGTON D.C. (BRAIN)--More
      Americans are commuting by bicycle than ever,
      according to U.S. Census figures. With a nearly 9
      percent growth rate between 1990 and 2000, bicycling
      was the country's fastest growing commute mode during
      the 1990s.

      The states with the greatest growth in bike commuting
      between 1990 and 2000 were Oklahoma (151 percent),
      Indiana (144 percent), Michigan (120 percent), New
      Jersey (94 percent), and West Virginia (91 percent).

      Bicycle commuting is most popular in Washington,
      D.C.--a city that has some of the nation's worst
      traffic according to the Urban Mobility Report--with
      over 1.4 percent of commuters traveling by bike. Among
      the states that lead the nation in bike commuting are
      Oregon, Arizona and California, with 1.18, 1.15 and
      .81 percent bike commuters, respectively.
