New York City's bike culture continues to grow.

“New York has really become a biking world,” says one two-wheeled commuter in this New York Times feature. With a fleet of 10,000 shared Citi Bikes and 1,133 miles of bike routes (including 425 miles of protected bike lanes), the Big Apple's bike culture is still expanding—and getting safer every year.
