New American Community Surveys numbers in 2015 showed bicycle commuting on the rise throughout Philadelphia and its suburbs — we’re currently at 2.2 percent citywide.

And in a newly-created map by Bicycle Coalition research director John Boyle, it’s easy to see just where those bicyclists are coming from.

Boyle created a map showing bicycle commuting numbers by neighborhood throughout Philadelphia, and viable suburban neighborhoods in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

That map is available after the jump:

As you can see, some of the most-commuted neighborhoods include those areas around Center City, especially South and West Philadelphia.

It’s important to keep in mind that these people represent bicycling commuters, not those who use bicycles to get around for other reasons.
