Help with State Bike Count Sept. 27-29
Please join 100s of volunteers across the state to count over 70,000 people biking and walking on September 27 - 29. This is the ninth year of the cooperative project between Cascade Bicycle Club and Washington State Department of Transportation and makes Washington state one of the leaders in counting people who walk or bike. These counts provide invaluable data on the numbers of people cycling, as well as gender and helmet use.
Count locations in Everett and Mountlake Terrace still need volunteers from either 7 to 9 a.m. or 4 to 6 p.m. on any or each of the three days.
Please volunteer for a site today.
