World of Statistics: In an attempt to find out more about adult thoughts and perspectives on cycling as well as its practical applications, the World of Statistics conducted a poll and released a list titled "Percentage of Adults Riding a Bicycle At Least Once a Week". The research focuses on interesting features of cycling and how it might be applied to different industries.

India Tops The List

The highest percentage of urban Indians worldwide— at least 2 in 3 (67%)— claim to ride a bicycle at least once a week. The Netherlands (65%) and China (66%) came next. However, the UK (19%) and Canada (16%) had the lowest rates of riding. Additionally, a minimum of 21% of Indian urban dwellers stated that their main means of transportation for short trips— up to 2 kilometers— was a bicycle. The Netherlands (45%) and China (33%), whose inhabitants reported cycling shorter distances than others, had the greatest percentages. The US (6%), followed by Canada (4%) were the markets where bicycles were least popular as the principal form of transportation.

Germany scored the lowest (77%), while China and Peru had the highest marks (94%) among markets. 88% of Indians living in cities think that cycling contributes significantly to reducing traffic.
