Ha! Los Angeles public radio staged a race between a car, a bicyclist, and public transportation, going crosstown from downtown to the beach during rush hour (which is a misnomer, as it lasts 24 hours). The results?
Car (including parking time): 70 minutes
Bus: 94 minutes
Bike: 65 minutes
The bike would have been even faster if he biked using the sidewalks like
you’re not allowed to do I and everyone else I see on a bike does. If would have been slower, however, if someone else were biking. I’ve biked this path too, and while a lady never tells her pace, let’s just say it did not take me 65 minutes.
