This map of Europe shows how many of each country’s population uses bicycles as a mode of transportation, based on data gathered by the European Commission.
Among those with reported data, the Netherlands is the most bike-friendly country in Europe. 36 percent of Dutch people who responded to the survey say use bikes regularly. Denmark and Hungary place second and third, respectively. Sweden, Finland, Belgium, and Germany round up the top European cycling spots.
A majority of European countries say that only less than ten percent of those surveyed use bikes. Portugal has the lowest bike-riding rate, with just one percent of its respondents cycling on a regular basis.
