More cyclists nationwide, but not in Merced

The number of people who commute to work by bicycle has increased by about 60 percent nationwide since 2000. However, in Merced County, half as many people pedal to work than a decade ago, according to numbers released Thursday by the U.S. Census. The city of Merced faces air pollution and obesity issues, and has made an effort to pump the number of riders up.
