America Bikes is a national group that advocates for federal transportation funding for bicycling. They have some interesting bicycling statistics for all of the states in the nation.
Here is their data for Kansas and neighboring states:
- Number = Estimated number of adults riding bicycles at least once a month in the summertime
- Funding = Transportation Enhancements funds since 1992
- Projects = Number of bicycle/pedestrian projects since 1992, including multi-use paths and walkways
Even though the number of Kansas cyclists compares favorably to other states in the region, its share of federal funding, and the number of projects built, falls woefully short.
