Numbers part two: while riding back from downtown Wednesday I routed myself along nearly the entire length of 4th Street as usual, though this time at the tail end of rush hour. I am happy to report that in the twenty or twenty-five minutes I spent on Fourth, I saw seventeen other cyclists using the street. These were mostly coming the other way, of course, since I would neither pass nor be passed by most people going the same direction. I also noted five or six riders on streets crossing 4th, but only counted the ones who rode along it.
And today, while riding fourth yet again with a bunch of LACBC folk to inventory potholes, I saw numerous other riders using the street to get somewhere, wearing everyday clothes including skirts or slacks.
Good sign for this prospective bicycle boulevard.
