The Love to Ride Blog

Creating a more bike friendly world

It's been 35,272,721 rides to be exact! As the year draws to a close, we have taken a deep dive into the data and have a lot to share with you. Spotify might be able to tell you which song you listened to the most (and yes, we are too embarrassed to share any of ours), but we can tell you how many people you got riding bikes...and it's a lot.

Find out how many trips were made for transportation purposes, how many high fives riders gave out to encourage each other, and some of the behavior change outcomes we achieved!
