Bicycling to work up 18% in Sydney, Australia

According to the following article in the Sydney Morning Herald, cycling to work in Sydney is on the rise. Cyclists increased from 0.4% of all commuters in Sydney in 2001 to 0.6% in 2006. That is still a long way off from Ottawa's 1.9% cycling to work, which in turn is far off Copenhagen's nearly 30% who cycle to work! The article says that the relatively small number is due to the failure to accomodate cyclists as commuters.
