"Nationally there are over 1 million daily commuters and nearly 57 million people who report regular bicycling activities. According to a recent poll, over half of Americans want to bike more than they do now.

Yet bicycling and walking account for at least 7 percent of trips and 13.3 percent of traffic fatalities."
