    Of course I still regularly encounter pedestrians on the Case bridge when I ride there in the PM. Its not like one avoids all conflicts on that route (and I still take the sidewalks on that one block of G to get to it, and there are usually peds there too).

    The Case bridge is of course not a guaranteed zero-conflict route, but then I've never had to navigate through multiple busloads of meandering, non-English speaking tourists who have never heard a bike bell before up there, so there is that.

    Oh but that's on the part past the PBL. I've been dealing with that since back when Water Street existed. They thus provoke nostalgia, and, being seasonal, are much like the swallows of Capistrano.

    Has anyone who uses the PBL at about the same time daily been checking the Bikeometer to see if usage has been increasing?
