Raleigh (NC) investment in cycling infrastructure paying off in big way, data shows

  • Date: 10/12/2023

The city has been investing in infrastructure like protected and unprotected bike lanes and greenway systems. A look at the data shows that investment is paying off in a big way, by keeping cyclists safer.

Not only are there fewer crashes but, when there is a crash, it’s less likely to result in an injury, according to the data. In 2018, there were 19 cyclists injured for every 100,000 Raleigh residents. Last year, it dropped below five crashes per 100,000 residents — even as the city’s population and interest in cycling grew.
