Lots more people riding bikes in Tucson
Web Producer: Marissa Pasquet
TUCSON (AP) - The city of Tucson says ridership among bicyclists increased sharply last year.
The city cites U.S. Census Bureau data released from its annual American Communities Survey for 2010.
The survey shows that bicyclists commuting to work jumped by 58 percent in 2010 from the previous year.
The city says the increase is significant because ridership had stagnated from 2000 to 2009.
Tucson has more than 700 miles of bicycle lanes and was named the best town for road biking by Outdoor Magazine last October.
