regarding Chapter 17: Urban Street Segments

I want to know if there is a way to predict the conditions for cyclists in a bike lane using HCM2010. Depending on the volume of cyclists. The Bicycle LOS does not seams to take the volume of cyclists and the bike lane capacity into account.

The bicycle LOS methodology for urban streets does not consider bike lane capacity. The only HCM methodology that considers bicycle meeting and passing events is for off-street facilities (Chapter 23).
