Here are some fun statistics from the article:
- In New York City bicycling is up 66% from 2007–2009, and injuries are down 50%.
- From 2000 to 2007, bicycle commuting in Chicago increased 203%
- 2005 to 2008, there was a 104% increase in Philadelphia
- Since 2006 there has been a 53% increase in San Francisco
I love cycling in high heels and skirts. I love the wind on my face and the freedom. The thing I get some the article is the more adorable women on bikes means the more people in general on bikes and the more people on bikes means it's a safer place for cyclists.
There is safety and numbers. Plus, unlike driving, biking is a therapeutic relaxing activity, even when you're biking down Freeport Blvd. dodging high school age drivers and preoccupied parents.
So pick out your cutest outfit, strap on some heels and a cute hat or helmet and go for a ride.
