My Cyclist Count for Wednesday March 10, 2010

By | March 10, 2010

count-von-count-sesame-streetI have a little game I like to play when I get bored of my commute, and I call it “Count the Cyclists” (yes, it’s a very creative name).

I do it to keep my mind occupied sometimes (but not at the expense of being aware of cars and such, of course) and watch the “count” grow as the weather gets warmer.

It’s a very un-scientific game.

Here are the rules:

1) I count the cyclists I see on my morning commute
2) My commuting route can change at any time, and this doesn’t matter (currently, I take sidestreets from Danforth and Woodbine to Danforth and Broadview, head over the Bloor Viaduct and then take the Sherbourne and Wellesley Bikelanes to work.
3) To be counted, a person must be riding or walking their bike.
4) the cyclists can be going in any direction – same way as me, opposite way as me… along cross-streets to my route, even parallel to my route (if I look up a sidestreet and see someone biking along a parallel street, they count)

I think that’s about all the rules.

Here are today’s numbers, and I’ll try to update similar counts on the days I play this game. :)
