Who Bikes to Work in Charlottesville vs. Bike Infrastructure

Today we celebrate National Bike to Work Week and Infrastructure Week with some visualizations of bike commuting in Charlottesville.  This is a very simple visualization where we mash up Census ACS data on who bikes to work in Charlottesville with the city’s bike lane GIS maps.  There are a variety of threads to pull on from each of these maps and we hope that it informs people about bike infrastructure and commuting rates in the city. For more information on bike infrastructure, take a look at the Federal Highway Administration Design Guide. See below for data and technical notes.
