I reworked the visualization adding greater detail. It doesn't quite fit embedded into Blogger, so you'll have to click over to my website to view the interactive version.
The demographic insights remain the same, number one being that collegiate cycling is concentrated in very few states. Almost 50% of all racers are attending school in 1 of 4 states.
- Colorado has almost 20% of all Category A racers
- California: almost 12%
- North Carolina: about 10%
- Indiana: 6.5%
One interesting project that could flow out of this would be finding the geographical location for Nationals competitions that results in the fewest miles travelled.
