Sometime in July or August?  So thinks Ohrn:

This counter registered 70,402 people on bikes who crossed the bridge in February 2015.  This is a 71.7 percent increase over the number counted in February, 2014.  Year-to-date increase is 40.2 percent over 2014.   People like to ride their bikes, and they just keep on a-ridin’.  Especially when there is safe and effective infrastructure available and connected into useable networks.

  •    Total riders year-to-date 2015      133,651
  •    Riders as of  March 1, 2015                  422
  •    Riders in January 2015                    62,827
  •    Riders in February 2015                  70,402

My private projection is that the count of people riding bikes over the Burrard Bridge will reach 1,000,000 somewhere in late July or early August.  This projection is subject to revision, obviously, as things progress through the year. But does anyone want to consider unleashing some hoopla when the magic number rolls over?
