Bike counters needed - Tues 7 March
Hobart bike lovers have the chance to transform their city and help the local community by volunteering to tally bike riders at Australia’s biggest commuter bike rider count, Super Tuesday, on Tuesday 7 March.
Bicycle Network’s Super Tuesday collects data on the number of bike riders and their movements, and is used by local councils to improve bike riding conditions and plan infrastructure. Every volunteer is also given a $50 donation to go towards either their own Bicycle Network membership or to our bike advocacy work in Tasmania.
Volunteering on Super Tuesday is a great way to make it easier for people to ride a bike. By volunteering and counting bike riders on Super Tuesday you can show your local council exactly what is happening out on the streets. The data you gather could be the starting point for a new bike lane or path outside your front door.
Hobart City Council, Clarence City Council, Glenorchy City Council and Kingborough Council are all participating in the count, with more than 60 sites at intersections and bike paths across the greater Hobart area to be counted.
Registrations for Super Tuesday volunteers are now open at supertuesday.com.au, with a full list and map of count sites available. The count will be held from 7:00am to 9:00am on Tuesday 7 March.
