Biking in Wisconsin.

Bicycling plays an important role in moving people in Wisconsin, many of whom rely on or choose this form of travel for their main means of transportation. Studies show that as many as 5 percent of commuters in Wisconsin bicycle to work during peak months. Also 9 percent of all Wisconsin trips are made by walking or bicycling.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation recently released a state bicycle plan to help communities and individuals develop bicycle-friendly facilities throughout the state. All 14 metropolitan areas in Wisconsin also have their own bicycle and pedestrian plans.
