And here is who is the least likely to know how to ride a bike: people in the Northeast. Not sure why but 12% of the people who said they don’t reside in the Northeast. White Americans are most likely to know how to drive. Four percent said they don’t know how to ride, while 7% of hispanics and ten percent of African Americans said they don’t know how. As for marital status, single people are twice as likely to know how to ride a bike than married people. And surprisingly, more older people than young people know how to ride bikes. You can see all the stats here if you want more.
If you were to guess how many Americans don’t know how to ride a bike, what number would you throw out? That’s what a survey from a couple years ago asked (not sure why it’s just coming to light now). Based on 1,196 adults in the United States who responded to the survey, the answer is 6% of Americans don’t know how to ride a bike, according to FiveThirtyEight.
