According to the SDOT, there are more bicycle commuters headed to Downtown Seattle than in previous years, a 15% increase since 2007 when the counts were last done.
In addition to pretty charts, the web page has a lot of interesting stats listed, such as:
Percentage increase since since 2000: 28%
Number of bicyclists wearing a helmet in 1992: 71%
Number of bicyclists wearing a helmet in 2000: 82%
Number of bicyclists wearing a helmet in 2007: 89%
Number of miles cycled yearly by average bike commuter: 1,992
I learned about this data being available from a posting on the PI web site.
