Minneapolis, my hometown and place-of-residence, of the 50 largest cities in the U.S., is ranked #2 for bicycle commuters, with 2.5% of the population choosing to ride to work. We’re second only to Portland, Oregon.
By comparison, the national average is 0.04%. Pathetic, especially when you compare the rest of the country’s climate to Minnesota’s harsh variations.
