Wisconsin Biking Makes $1.5 Billion Per Year

A recent article in the Wisconsin State Journal confirmed what we already know. Wisconsin is full of recreational bicyclists and the bicycling industry in Wisconsin is one of the most important around.

A few interesting facts from the story were that 49% of all Wisconsin residents are recreational bicyclists, biking in Wisconsin makes more money for the State than deer hunting, and Wisonsin produces more bikes than cars.

One thing not mentioned in the article is Wisconsin's beautiful trails and roads for biking as the story focused on economic and health impact of bicycling. For more on the health impacts of bicycling, see my links about:
