How many bike riders did McLaughlin count?

After reading Joe McLaughlin’s article (Saturday, Sept. 29) concerning bike lane traffic and his valiant effort to prove that bike lanes pose no threat to motorists, one aspect was glaringly absent from his research: How many cyclists did he pass during his travels?

The headline refers to bike lanes as a “threat” to traffic. I feel the word “inconvenience” would be more appropriate, especially when it appears that very few cyclists are actually using the lanes.

Also, when winter arrives and plows push the snow to the edges of the road, the bike lanes will no longer exist.
