We don't ride bikes?

I saw this on the Huckleberry's Blog:

Hucks Poll: We Don’t Ride Bikes
Monday Poll: A majority of Hucks Nation either doesn't ride bikes or rides them only occasionally. 49 of 108 respondents (45.37%) said they never ride bikes. Another 21 of 108 (19.44%) said they ride bikes only occasionally. Only 5 respondents (4.63%) said they ride bikes every day. Other votes were scattered among those who ride bikes 2-3 times per week, 22 (20.37%). And those who ride bikes once a week, 11 (10.19%).
I didn't understand the math very well. Less than half said they don't ride bikes. It would be far easier to claim that "We Do Ride Bikes", since over half said they do at least occasionally. Still, that's a pretty good percentage. If you asked how many readers crochet or scrapbook or play guitar, I'll bet that number would be considerably lower. I'll take that poll as proof that we have a strong cycling community.


  1. 5% is actually 3 to 4% higher than the national average for everyday commuters....thats pretty good!

  2. nice written and you made the stats very clear. thanks for sharing the information.
