Seattle’s Fremont Bridge has seen an uptick in bike traffic, according to the Seattle Department of Transportation.

Weekly totals of two-wheeled travelers jumped 28 percent in October and November compared to the same time last year, data recorded by the bridge’s bike counter shows.

SDOT’s Craig Moore said it’s hard to pinpoint a cause of the growth in ridership, but the recent dry stretch likely played a role.
