Breaking News - Cyclists ride in the winter! And, there are more cyclists every year!

Graph of Daily Cyclist Count vs. Average Daily Temperature

We know it’s just getting around to summer, but we’ve recently looked at some cycling data from the last few years, and we’ve found that more cyclists ride in the winter than we thought. Here’s are some conclusions from our review of the data. Let us know your thoughts on this information.

 

  • Less cyclists ride in the winter (as you might expect) but the number never goes to zero, even on our coldest days.
  • Daily rider counts from 2016 were generally higher than from previous years.
  • The trend line for each year’s data shows an increase from 2014 through to 2016.
