The number of Utahns who bicycle to work increased by 65 percent since 2005, although the numbers remain tiny. Still, that puts Utah in the top 10 among the states for bicycling commuters by percentage.
Utah's percentage increased from 0.6 percent in 2005 to 0.99 in 2012, according to a new study by the League of American Bicyclists using data from the U.S. Census Bureau's annual American Community Survey.
That percentage now ranks Utah as No. 9 among the states. Oregon has the highest percentage of bicycle commuters at 2.5 percent, and Arkansas has the lowest at 0.08.
