This is cool: more than 20% of people in parts of Mt. Pleasant of Petworth ride their bikes to work, with big percentages elsewhere in our area.
The data, compiled by DDOT and reported in Greater Greater Washington and the Post, shows big percentages all around Columbia Heights, Petworth, Mt. Pleasant and surrounding areas, up to 15% in southern Columbia Heights and northern Petworth.
It makes sense -- we're uphill from a lot of central areas in the city with lots of bike lanes -- I prefer the 11th Street one to riding down busy 14th, but many people do.
You can dig more into the data at DDOT -- do you ride your bike to work? I've actually found it was a bit scary at first, but you get used to it. Wear a helmet, however!
