Today is Bike to Work Day!


WASHINGTON--May 16, 2014: Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:


Profile America — Friday, May 16th. Today is National Bike to Work Day, the exact center of May's National Bike Month. From coast-to-coast, cycling enthusiasts are expected to take part in a wide range of activities sponsored by environmental and civic groups, health organizations, and police departments. Across the U.S., about 18 percent of the population over age 16 does at least some bike riding during the year, with an estimated 9 million bike trips in the country every day. Even in the face of rising gas prices, the vast majority of us — more than three-quarters — drive to work alone. Slightly over 5 percent use public transportation, and just under that percentage use bikes and other means to get to their jobs. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy, from the American Community Survey, at Census.
