normally in the past my campus has been like 99% sidewalk cyclists but today (first day of classes for me) I noticed a lot more cyclists riding in the road than usual... granted the ratio of sidewalk to road cyclists is still like 3-1 over there but still
this is definitely a good thing in my opinion... I guess a lot of student bicyclists grew tired of the constant conflicts with peds, turning cars, etc... now if they could learn to wear helmets/signal turns/obey traffic laws also that would be even better

The kids are out in force at USC, but the only time I see them on the road, avoiding the sidewalk, is when they are going the wrong way. But since most of them are cute coeds in miniskirts I just slow down, give them wide berth, and enjoy the show. I seriously doubt that more than a tiny percentage of these kids will continue cycling upon leaving the university.
