Making bikes count

Better bike data helps advocates and jurisdictions increase safety, improve bicycle routes and make the case that traveling by bike is an important way to get around whether for transportation or recreation. Cascade is leading the charge around collecting and using ridership data to make bicycling better in communities across Washington, from short-term manual bike counts to building a comprehensive network of permanent bike counters throughout the state that monitor bicycle numbers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

Help advance this effort by volunteering for the Washington Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation project or use data from permanent counters being installed across the state to better advocate for people riding bikes in your community.
