Newsday reports that 4,100 bikers a day are crossing the East River bridges, up 1,300 per day from last year. Bike ridership is at its highest level since the DOT began tracking bicycle traffic in 1980. The DOT attributes the increase to several factors including improved bike paths on the bridges, increased subway fares and an overall trend of increased bicycle use. The DOT also points out that one of the major impediments to bicyclists is the lack of secure parking areas.
