I am not an Alliance member...just passing this on for your information, as I think this may be of general interest to many of you (in the USA).


The Alliance for Biking & Walking released their biennial Benchmarking report of bicycling and walking in the United States. The data are pulled from many national sources and gives some idea of how various states and regions measures up.

Here (http://www.peoplepoweredmovement.org/site/index.php/site/memberservices/C529)is a link to the general summary page, including media release. From their site:

About the 2010 Report:

Yay! Mode share is up to 1%!
That's good news on two fronts. It is good news that bicycling is increasing. And it is good news that we still have PLENTY of room for improvement!
