- Bicycle Culture by Design: How Far You Ride

Ages ago we posted the EU statistics about how far people in different countries ride on average each year. I found these updated statistics for 2007 through a fine blog about cycling in Vienna called Cycling is Good For You.

These stats are for 2006. They differ slightly compared to our post back in 2007. I can't figure out when the previous stats stats are from. May be 2006. Some numbers are up, some are down. Marginal differences though. Except Denmark now takes first place, up from second.

Anyway, stats are fun.Denmark: 954 kmNetherlands: 879 kmBelgium: 329 kmGermany: 298 kmSweden: 277 kmFinland: 256 kmIreland: 186 kmAustria: 173 kmItaly: 159 kmGreat Britain: 84 kmFrance: 81 kmGreece: 77 kmLuxembourg: 31 kmPortugal: 29 kmSpain: 27 kmOther countries outside of the EU:Japan: 354 kmSwitzerland: 287 kmNorway: 164 km
