2018 US Bicycling & Walking Benchmarking Report Released

Feb 13, 2019

A benchmarking report on bicycling and walking in the United States first appeared in in 2007, when it was created by cycling and walkability advocates as a way to track data on the two transportation modes.
The 2018 edition, titled Bicycling & Walking in the United States: 2018 Benchmarking Report, is the first published by the League of American Bicyclists, which explains the report’s purpose by noting, “People support biking and walking for a variety of reasons. The benchmarking report is intended to provide data from diverse sources, so report users can decide how best to present that data within their communities.”

The hefty (nearly 400-page) publication contains data about bicycling and walking as related to community health and engagement, economic strength, safe and connected transportation options, among other subject areas.
Thanks to AARP and the Livable Communities Newsletter for passing along the report and also a piece on bicycling solutions for communities.
