Signs of Success

All of these factors, conditions and historical circumstances combined to give rise not only to a city with an impressive rate of bicycle use (estimates of 20 - 25% of all trips being made by bicycle), but led to what has been called a bicycle "culture" in Davis.

Evidence for this "culture" ranges from the city's adoption of the vintage highwheeler bicycle as its official logo to the more subtle acceptance of bicycles for everyday utilitarian trips, by both college students and permanent residents. Bicycles plying the streets of Davis have become so commonplace that conflicts between cyclists and motorists are rare. Indeed, as many residents use both modes extensively, there is a great degree of mutual understanding and respect for the needs and desires of both groups.
