The Future of Cycling Infographic

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race."
H. G. Wells

Here's a great infographic I found recently, put together by WellHome about a year ago. Though the stats are all American, I'm sure the numbers are fairly similar in Canada. I also think that the marketing of cycling needs to change for people to consider it a normal transportation option rather than an extreme sport, so starting the infographic off with a silhouette of a mountain biker on a full-suspension bike throwing himself off a cliff isn't really the way to get your average North American biking to work. But that's a discussion for another post--this infographic has still got some really cool stuff in it.

Linking up with Bits of Bee this week:

  1. Cycling with a friend this morning! So excited.

  2. Very cool. I'm not very familiar with the cycling world so an infographic is a great way to learn more! Thanks for linking up!

    1. Thanks! Don't think of it as a separate world--cycling is just another way to get around. A cheap, healthy, green way. :)

  3. I used to bike everywhere when I still lived in Germany... it was the way to go. Here, not so much.
    A few weeks ago Middle and I took our bikes to the store... it brought back memories.

  4. I loved biking when I visited Germany! The drivers were all so courteous towards us, compared to here. Unfortunately, most of the cities in North America are built around the car & it takes a lot of political will to add in the right kind of infrastructure that makes cycling an attractive alternative for families.

  5. it's ironic that I am reading this as my hubby is watching the Tour de France that he recorded. he loves biking, and thankfully I think our kids will inherit that love.
    my bike is still hanging upside down from the garage rafters where it was put during my last pregnancy - over 2 years ago. the tires are flat, the brakes don't work....but he promises me it will be ready "any day now." LOL

  6. Here is what this post reminded me of. We don't bike enough in our family. We should. We don't. If I want my daughter to ever ride a two wheel bike without training wheels, we need to do it more. THanks for the reminder.
