Volunteers Needed For Bike/Ped Counts

Do you have a couple hours you can spare on the weekend of Sept. 29- Oct.1? The Cascade Bicycle Club has been contracted by the Washington State Department of Transportation to conduct statewide counts of bicyclists and pedestrians and is looking for volunteers to help out.

To have counts taken in our community though, we have to be able to demonstrate that we can get enough volunteers together to do it.Here's more information and a place to sign up to volunteer. Tell your friends and family.
