Bike-onomy: Cycling in Your Local Economy

What's the value of cycling to your local economy? That's a question I've been thinking about since stumbling across a report that peg's Portland's cycling related economic activity at US$90 million for 2008 (click image to enlarge). When I started poking around, I found a collection of other similar stats for other areas.

This is really just the stub of an article that I'll be developing more for next week. I wanted to ask anyone reading out there who has some info on the bike economy in their area (especially, but not only, if you live outside the USA) to post something in the comments field, or send me a note at alex.aylett[at]gmail dot com.

This is a blog for news and views on the future of sustainable cites. A major revamp is in the works. Until then I am keeping this version up as an archive of my past writing.

You can expect occasional updates, but not with the same frequency as in the past.

You can also find my writing on urban redesign and sustainability in ReNew Canada, The Mark, Sustainable Cities Canada, WorldChanging, and other more specialized academic publications.

Info on my consulting work, c.v. and current research focus is all here.
