Bike & Pedestrian 'Census'

Volunteers are needed to help count Washington state walkers and bikers in order to establish benchmarks and track progress toward the state’s goal of encouraging people to get out of their cars.

The Washington State Department of Transportation and the Cascade Bicycle Club are enlisting volunteers to count the numbers of people bicycling and walking on paths, bike lanes, sidewalks, and other facilities on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 and 2.

Here's more info if you're interested.
