More biked in Feb 2010 than a summer month in 2006


Our bicycle coordinator Roger Geller just stopped by Commuter Central to point out a cool graph from the 2010 Portland Annual Bicycle Count Report that demonstrates Portland's explosive growth in bicycling.

The graph below looks at historic ridership on the Hawthorne Bridge compared to several different 2010 hose counts on the Hawthorne. The orange bars represent 2010 counts from different months. The purple lines show the summer average monthly bike counts for 2000, 2005 and 2006:

In 2010 more people biked across the Hawthorne in February than did during the peak summer month of 2006. We had more people traverse the Hawthorne by bike in JANUARY 2010 than we did in August 2005.

The graph also demonstrates what a lousy spring we had (in addition to a very nice February). We had more people biking in January than we did in May!
