Volunteers sought for bike, pedestrian count

Organizers of the annual Washington State Bicycle and Pedestrian Count are seeking volunteers

Organizers of the annual Washington State Bicycle and Pedestrian Count are seeking volunteers to help a statewide data-collection effort that will inform decisions about funding for sidewalks, trails, and bike lanes in communities all across Washington state.

The count will take place over three days — Oct. 20-22 — at four sites in Sequim: three on the Olympic Discovery Trail and one at the traffic circle on Sequim-Dungeness Way.

Volunteers will spend two-hours each, either in the morning or the afternoon, at one of the sites over the three days; in all 24 shifts need to be filled.

Each volunteer selects a morning (7-9 a.m.) or afternoon (2-4 p.m.) shift and one of four sites, documenting bicyclists and pedestrians who pass by. After signing up, volunteers will get detailed instructions.

The count is a joint effort between the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Cascade Bicycle Club, with local coordination by the Olympic Peninsula Bicycle Alliance (OPBA).

Register at bikepedcount.wsdot.wa.gov, or contact OPBA president Ken Stringer at info@olympicpeninsulacycling.com for more information.
