2013 bike counts are done!

The sixth annual statewide bicycle and pedestrian counts came to an end yesterday. A big Thank You goes out to the hundreds of volunteers who have been gathering precious data these past few days.

Since 2008, Cascade Bicycle Club has collaborated with the Washington State Department of Transportation and local jurisdictions to coordinate bicycle and pedestrian counts in over 30 communities around Washington. This annual statewide data collection effort, initiated by the State to help measure bicycling and walking rates over time, provides useful data that is critical for planning, designing, advocating and ultimately funding new and improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities in communities across the state. The data also helps to better understand factors that influence bicycling and walking.

Thank you all for volunteering!

Here's a short video made by volunteer Nick Welch about his experience.
