Help document the demand for more and better bikeways in Chicago!
The Chicago Bicycle Program is recruiting volunteers to participate in the June 2012 Downtown Bike Count during one or more of the following times:
Tuesday, June 26th between 7AM – 9AM and 4PM – 6PM
Saturday, June 30th between Noon – 2PM
Approximately 25 volunteers are needed for each of the 3 time slots
Volunteers will help record changes in seasonal ridership, document the need for bicycle infrastructure and help advance Chicago’s commitment to be the Most Bicycle Friendly City in America.
In March of 2012, volunteers recorded over 4,100 bicyclists at 24 locations entering and exiting the Central Business District during the morning and afternoon peak hours. The stats from the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 counts are available here: http://www.chicagobikes.org/public/bikecounts.php
