On November 15, 2012, a representative from Linus Bike commends Oakland after it is named one of the top commuter bike cities.
According to information released from U.S. Census Bureau’s 2011 American Community Survey, of the 100 largest cities in the country, Oakland, Calif., is seventh in the nation by percentage of people that choose to commute by bike. According to information from the U.S. Census Bureau, Oakland has experienced more than a 200% increase in commuter cycling since 2000 with one of the largest growth periods occurring in 2011, moving it into the top 10 commuter bike cities for the first time.
Among the cities leading Oakland in commuter bicyclists by percentage of population are Madison, Wis., Portland, Ore. and Oakland’s bay area neighbor San Francisco.
China Reevers, a representative for commuter bike manufacturer Linus Bike, applauds the Oakland by stating; “This is an extraordinary growth for a city and we commend Oakland for making strides in cycling and opting to get onto their bikes to get to work. One can only hope that more people will see the health and environmental benefits of cycling and begin to take their bikes on the commute to work.”
