Every year the Cascade Bike Club coordinates volunteers to count cyclists and pedestrians at locations around the region.

The counts will take place on October 1, 2 and 3 with two-hour shifts in either the morning or evening. Sign up today to volunteer!

There are currently 11 slots open in Issaquah.

To register:
2. Click the link for the volunteer registration tool.
3. Scroll down on the list of opportunities to find a city near you.
4. Click the registration button at the bottom. You may need to create a profile if you have never volunteered with Cascade before.
5. Login and then check the location and count time you want to register for.
6. Click Complete Registration.
7. Download and print the count forms to bring with you day-of. 

Please Note: the website only allows you to sign up for count shifts on October 3; however you can choose to conduct your count on any of the three dates (October 1, 2 or 3). Please just indicate the date you choose on your count form.

Hi Gang,

Sorry to bug you again, but there are still 11 slots open for the Bike/Ped count event.

This is a super easy way to add actual data to the ongoing debate about walking and biking vs. other modes of transportation in our city and around the state.

If you can spare two hours (7am-9am or 4pm-6pm) on any one of October 1st, 2nd, or 3rd to hang out at an intersection in town counting how many cyclists and walkers go by then you can make a difference.

If you can spare more than two hours, one person could conceivably cover six locations (one each morning and afternoon on each of the three days). Be a hero!

Instructions for signing up are below. It can be a little confusing the first time so let me know if you need assistance.

Thanks!
Jeff
