@1) The city says "an average of 1,099 bicyclists a day."
@3) Perhaps you're correct--the city didn't provide that info. But just based on my experience: given the steep grade of downtown's slope, cyclists are reluctant to take a different avenue than the one they need to be on (say, descending from Fourth Avenue to Second), because it can involve riding back up a steep hill later to get back onto the road they need to reach.
