The bike industry started as a niche hobby, a niche niche for people who didn’t want to buy anything else, and then grew to become one of the most important industries in the country, according to the Bicycle Industry Group.
The group estimates that bicycle manufacturing and sale grew from a small number of people in the 1870s to about 20 million today.
This industry is the backbone of America’s economy, providing jobs for people and the economy, the group says.
“The bicycle is the lifeblood of the country,” said John F. Kennedy, president of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Industries Association.
“It’s also a vital component of the transportation system.”
In the early 1900s, the American Bicycle Company began making bicycle parts, and it’s still one of Americas largest manufacturers today.
Bicycle parts are now used in everything from airplanes to military vehicles.
They are used to fix tires, brakes, seat belts, and even brake pads.
In some parts of the world, bicycles have become the backbone for the transportation of medical supplies and medical equipment.
The U.S. bicycle industry employs about 2.2 million people, or about 1.8 percent of the entire workforce, according the Bicycle Institute.
In addition to manufacturing and selling bicycles, the Bicycle Industries of America supports a wide range of other industries, including the National Park Service, the U. S. Postal Service, and the U, S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The Bicycle Institute says its members make up about one-fifth of the overall U.s. gross domestic product.
About 30 percent of Americans say they ride their bikes at least once a week, according a 2009 survey.
A new survey by the Bicycle Insurance Association shows that more than half of Americans have ridden their bikes within the last five years.
The number of U. s. adults who ride their bicycles at least one day a week has increased by almost two-thirds since the 1980s, according for the Association of Insurance Commissioners.
The survey also showed that the percentage of people who use a bicycle for transportation has more than doubled since 2000, rising from 14 percent in 2000 to 19 percent today.
The bicycle industry is also responsible for a number of important jobs.
“Bicyclists make up a growing share of our workforce and are responsible for many of the jobs and activities that we have today, from manufacturing and service jobs to transportation and communications jobs,” the Bicycle Innovation Alliance says.
The industry is expanding fast, with new companies and industries popping up in every state, according, to the group.
Some industries have seen growth since 2000: the automotive industry grew from 5 percent to 18 percent, and manufacturing grew from 13 percent to 22 percent.
In 2018, the bicycle industry will have more than 7,300 employees.
That’s up from 6,000 employees in 2014.
The new companies include the American Cycle Manufacturing Corporation, the Mountain Bike Association, the National Bicycle Coalition, the Bicycling and Pederati Association, and a bike shop called Bicycle Bikes.
The Association of Bicycle Dealers is also growing, with nearly 7,500 members in the state of Colorado, which includes Boulder, Colorado.
The bike shops are also helping to create jobs in other parts of Colorado.
In 2015, the state became the first in the nation to legalize bike share, a service where people who have a bike can share it for free with other riders.
The program allows people to rent bikes from the Bikeshare website and to earn points when they use them.
A survey by The Associated Press found that the average bike share rider earns $18,000 annually in the city of Denver, with those earning more than $100,000 making the most.
The city’s tax incentives helped generate $30 million in revenue for the city in 2018.
Bicycle companies have also been investing in other aspects of their business, such as creating bicycle shops that offer tours of the city.
There are now more than 1,300 bike shops in Colorado, according To Meghan, owner of Bike Tours Colorado.
Each of the 300 businesses have been operating for two or more years.
“We’ve been expanding,” Meghan said.
“There’s no question that we’re going to see a lot more bike shops.
We just have to have the right people in place to make that happen.”
