Celebrate National Bike Month with a look back at our recent cycling coverage
Over the last 20 years, the number of bicyclists has grown rapidly from coast to coast. Although still a small minority, an increasing number of people in cities like Portland, Washington D.C., and Minneapolis are choosing to commute by bike instead of cars.
That’s not all that’s changing in the bike community. In honor of National Bike Month—celebrated every May—we’ve dug deep into the Curbed archives to take a snapshot of biking today in the United States.
From new bike designs to an ever-expanding network of bike sharing systems, urbanites now have more access to bikes than ever before. But the U.S. still lags well behind other countries when it comes to bike infrastructure and usage. That’s why Curbed has also looked at specific cities to see exactly how local governments are pushing biking forward.
