Seattle ranks No. 6 in the United States for its percentage of bicycle commuters per capita. Move.org says 2.8 percent of Seattle workers commute on bike.
Seattle has 9.5 miles of protected bike lanes, and 98 miles of other bike lanes.
The study notes that Seattle’s number is particularly impressive given that it rains more than 150 days annually.
A different study by the League of American Bicyclists and the Alliance for Biking & Walking found that a strong bicycling culture can be an economic development tool to revitalize city economies.
Portland, Oregon, ranked No. 1 in the Move.org report, with 6.3 percent of workers commuting by bike. Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, San Francisco and, surprisingly, New Orleans all finished ahead of Seattle. Philadelphia, Oakland, Tucson and Denver round out the top 10.
