It's national bicycle counting day in Australia this article says: "Numbers expected to be up in annual bike count". It's also the first day since being here when I've taken the tram to work instead of cycling.
While I missed out on potentially being recorded as one of the many cyclists in Melbourne, I have some statistics of my own. Since moving to Fitzroy in early September I've cycled 2599.39km to and from work, taking a total of 102.95 hours for an average speed of 25.25km/hr (door-to-door). My average journey time is about the same as what people tell me it takes them to drive --- a bit over 30mins, my tram ride today took about an hour.
