Winter use is much lower, for sure. Not an excuse to get rid of our only crosstown protected bike lane in Lower City. It's one measly bike lane on one measly crosstown artery of several.

In ten years from now average total bikes for the whole year versus cars, should become the telling statistic. At some point, summer usage per lane would outweigh the winter and bad-weather reduced usage per lane, and it all averages out. Besides, there are multiple safe ways to go crosstown by car; there's very few safe ways to go crosstown by bike or even as a pedestrian.

On an annual basis, there's far more than enough "use" in the "use it or lose it" that it's not going away. They said Cannon bike lanes are being extended eastwards to go past the stadium and beyond (for pretty much the whole length of Cannon).
