Larger icons in the map represent cities where those who primarily bike to work accounted for higher shares of total commuters, as measured in the 2011 American Community Survey.
Click a marker to display data for each Census-designated place. Estimates reflect only those who bike to work. The Census Bureau's survey records a single transportation type for a person's longest distance traveled, so workers biking to subways only count as public transportation commuters.
Please note that many estimates have high margins of error. Some users will need to zoom in before clicking a city. Please zoom out or pan the map to view Alaska, Hawaii and other areas.
