SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- More people are riding bikes to get around San Francisco.
That's according to figures released on Thursday by the city's Municipal Transportation Agency and reported by the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/18pTNok).
The 2013 bike count shows a 14 percent increase in bike riders since 2011 and a 96 percent jump since 2006.
The additional bike riders come as the city has made improvements in its biking infrastructure, including new bicycle lanes and road markings that encourage drivers to share the road.
The MTA's figures are based on surveys taken at 51 intersections during the weekday evening commute between Sept. 10 and 19.
