Counting Bike Trips Could Get More People To Pedal

Professor Ryan states correctly that women don't feel safe or comfortable riding in San Diego. I'm a 56 year old man and I don't feel safe or comfortable on local class I bikeways like the Ocean Beach bike path along the San Diego River. Same goes for the Rose Creek bike path in Pacific Beach. Transients have twice attempted strong arm robbery of my bicycle as I rode through in the early morning darkness on my way to work. Riding through their trash and feces strewn camps can be hazardous when dozens of people are hauled out like harbor seals in sleeping bags across the path with no barrier and sharp riprap along the riverbed. Until the political will exists to keep these bike paths clear of this kind of danger, it will continue to discourage cycling commuters of both sexes from using these expensive facilities that the City wants to give away as plein air insane asylums and homeless shelters.

For anyone from Uptown who wants to join the ride, I'll be leaving from Adams Avenue Bicycles at around 3 pm today.
