From Good.com: There are an estimated 185,000 cyclists in New York City every day. An increase of 30% over just four years ago. At the same time, cyclist fatalities have decreased over the years. NYC has been working to improve it’s infastructure for cyclists. Increasing the number of bike lanes, bike access to public transportation and building new greenways.Ã‚Â
But those aren’t the only reasons for the decrease in rider fatalities. As many cyclists know, there is strength in numbers. With more people riding, the motorized commuters become more aware of cyclists and moreÃ‚Â accustomedÃ‚Â to sharing the road.Ã‚Â So spread the word and hit the streets.Ã‚Â
Even with more riders in NYC now than ever, the fatality rate is lower than it has been in a decade.Ã‚Â
