Top 100 Cycling Cities: New Data Points the Way on Bike Infrastructure Investment

Top 100 Cycling Cities: New Data Points the Way on Bike Infrastructure Investment

Thursday, November 18, 2021

1:00pm Eastern | 10:00AM Pacific

With reports of bicycles selling out in many cities early in the COVID-19 pandemic, the transportation community rejoiced about gains in bike ridership in 2020, and we crossed our collective fingers that a new bicycling habit was forming. Now 18 months into the pandemic, analysts used StreetLight InSight® to measure these trends and compile the first report of its kind that analyzes America’s top 100 cycling cities. So how has the COVID bicycling boom fared in 2021?

Join this live panel to hear from Kristin Musulin, report co-author and former editor of Smart Cities Dive, together with Martin Morzynski, co-author and SVP of Marketing at StreetLight, and Thomas Grogan, lead analyst behind the data, as they go deep on latest U.S. bike trends, zero in on “the why” behind key cities gaining and losing ridership, and provide easy-to-use location-data tools to help you analyze your own locality for bike activity on all streets, not just the few with physical counters.

This event will help you discover how new data is helping cities move quickly to identify highest-risk intersections for crashes, pinpoint major origins and destinations for cyclists, and prioritize new bike infrastructure where it’s needed most – based on data, as opposed to pre-pandemic hypotheses.
