To demonstrate that the Burke is not really very crowded during commuting, I took the following series of pictures on a beautiful summer Friday afternoon at about 5pm. A frame was shot every 2+ minutes (timed by a countdown timer on my watch) as I rode down the trail on my recumbent. You can see the fairing at the bottom of the photos. The commute took about 35 minutes to cover the 9 miles, giving me 16 frames. Since I did not want to publish all of these photos on the Web, I discarded every other frame. You see here the 8 frames which had the most activity. I leave it to the viewer to decide whether my commute was overly delayed by excessive slow traffic.
