Map of the Economic Impacts of Cycling

 
Biking is awesome. Nearly anyone, anywhere can pedal. And the economic benefits of bicycling are positively impacting communities across the country. Check out this map for the evidence (click that link for a larger version):

Some of my favorite tidbits:

  • In Indianapolis, a home’s value increases by 11 percent just from being a half-mile closer to the Monon Trail.
  • In 2011, Iowan commuter and recreational biking generated $400 million in economic activity.
  • In 2009, Minnesotans on bikes spent $261 million on cycling goods and services.
