who says that women ride less than men? ok, a lot of people do, but this is what i gathered as i was scoping out items for scenes from the bikey lane from this morning's commute. the following numbers were counted at stops at certain intersections along my route. meaning there was enough time for us to stop and for me to count before moving along with traffic. this occurred just before 9am this first monday morning of 2010.
1. page & octavia: 3 women; 1 man
2. van ness & market: 3 women; 1 man
3. 7th & market: 4 women; 2 men
4. 5th & market: 4 women; 3 men
5. 4th & market: 3 women; 3 men.
this sort of interested me as i started really counting the numbers. i think i may keep this up and see how my very informal take on gathering data & numbers goes.
do you see a significant amount of either gender on your workday commutes? are you noticing any changes?
