Cyclists past a point in March

With the weather being so cold, I am spending more time inside delving into data.
Bicycle Victoria conduct a bicycle count on major cycle routes in March each year called Super Tuesday. The results help with planning for cycling.
The monitored site in Port Melbourne is at the junction of the Bay Trail and the Sandridge Bike Path near the Beacon Cove tram terminus.
The count showed that 259 cyclists went past this point between 7 and 9 am on 2 March.
1,795 cyclists passed through the Swanston/Flinders intersection between 7 and 9 am, a 25% increase on 2009.
