Great groups of cyclists slowed my way to work today, and I am TOTALLY okay with that. Saw over 100 other cyclists on my way to work today. I love crowds of cyclists!

Bay St. on St. Patricks Day

By | March 17, 2011

I’m trying to get into the habit of taking a photo every day of something bikey … right now it’s with my old phone with not very good photo capabilities – but something is better than nothing, right? Today, I snapped a photo of Bay St, looking south from Wellesley.  This has been an ever-changing […]

2011 Counting

By | March 17, 2011

In 2010, for a couple months, I did very unscientific counts of cyclists on my way in to work every morning.  If a bike was being used, and I saw it, I counted it. I also made notes about what time I left home, what the temperature was, and what the weather was like. I […]

My Commute: Grateful for Shade

By | September 24, 2010

A few months ago, I posted about one of my favourite views on my commute home from work everyday… the view east along Wellesley – it’s urban, diverse and lively. I’d now like to share a part of my morning commute with you… a part that I was very grateful for during the heat of […]

Count: Breaking 200!

By | June 1, 2010

I’ve been a bad blogger here on Joe Bikes… preppin’ for a new baby will do that I guess. My focus has been on the main blog and the new BikeMonth section. Above is the raw data of my cyclist counts… today was the first day I saw over 200 cyclists (222) it obviously fluctuates […]

Counting Cyclists – Chartopalooza

By | April 30, 2010

It’s the end of April, so I decided to make a few charts. Everyone loves charts. First is the daily numbers and commuting temperatures: Next… I tracked the numbers based on what time I left the house (my start times vary at times)… you can see general increases as time goes on (and weather gets […]
