Hard facts on bike usage, production, sales, imports, exports and trade are
hard to come by. Many of the best statistics are buried in papers that are presented at conferences
such as VeloCity, ProBike and the Transportation Research Board (TRB). Sometimes these
papers are published after the conferences but it can then be difficult to get a
hold of the proceeding, and then they aren’t very well indexed so you have to go
through all of all of them to extract anything that might be useful to you.

We do not have the staff to be able to research this thoroughly. If you are able to
find a good source of information please let us know so that we can share it with others.
