 BikesCount report for Sunday 6th May 2012

Twenty one spotters counted cyclists for 2 hours from 8am till 10am, on a bright but cold morning. Total cyclists 1978 , of whom 25.6% were female. This is a much higher proportion of women and girls than on a Tuesday in October, but is this because women don’t commute, or don’t ride in the rain? The Super Tuesday count in March did not record gender.
