Proffesor Ryan is way out left field. She is making statements coming out of her own mind and not based on any scientific data. The bicycle network is not built for women, low income hispanics going to and from work in the north county! (she almost said undocumented!) Give me a break, those counters only log that a bike is going by. Now, her observations about who is using bikes on the road are as good as mine. So here it goes, along the coast you will find mostly mean upper middle class (yes, look at the price of the bikes that they ride, the gear attire, the precious time that they have to invest in improving their health and life, etc.) white men and women yelling at pedestrians to get out of the way (Left! Right!) along the paths; in the mid city, a multi culture of working class kids and adults, man and women. SANDAG should start investing on sidewalks that are used by vastly more numbers of users, are not mainly fro recreation, and are directly tied to transit. Every transit rider gets on sidewalk after getting off the bus.
