This is beautiful stuff. I won’t even get all persnickety about the graph further down the post with a y axis that doesn’t start at zero. I shall keep my inner data geek in check.

Cycle Toronto observed this trend this fall, when it counted more bikes than cars on College St. On Thurs Sept 19th, from 5pm to 6pm, Cycle Toronto counted 680 bikes and 618 cars travelling westbound. The overall bicycle mode share was 52%, and one 15-minute interval had a mode share of 57%. This hourly count occurred within an overall westbound count between 4:30pm and 6:30pm of 1,150 bikes and 1,227 cars (48% bikes, 52% cars). Since 2010, bike traffic on College St has increased by 67%!
