The nation’s percentage of people who commute to work by bicycle increased roughly 60 percent over the last decade, according to arecent U.S. Census Bureau report. Bicyclists still account for just 0.6 percent of all commuters. But they accounted for the largest percentage increase of all commuting modes tracked by the U.S. Census Bureau from 2000 through 2012, the federal agency reported last week.

In San Diego County, 0.7 percent of the region’s 1.4 million commuters biked to work, according to the recent report. About 3.1 percent took public transportation; 2.7 percent walked and 6.3 percent worked at home, according to the report."  

Be safe out there and watch out for other bikers, runners and cars!
