Yesterday’s absolutely gorgeous weather brought out the bike traffic that we know is increasing in Baltimore. Yeah, but how do we know for sure? We know because we count ‘em!
As part of the National Bicycle & Pedestrian Documentation Project, the 2nd bike counts of 2011 take place Tuesday, May 10th, Wednesday, May 11th and Thursday, May 12th. We’ll need more BIKE TRAFFIC VERIFIERS than ever to confirm cyclists on the city’s expanding bike network. We’ll be counting bikes at the usual:
- Falls & Maryland
- Guilford & Mt. Royal
- Aliceanna & Boston
- Frederick & The Gwynns Falls Trail
With new locations at
- Fleet & President
- Frederick & Athol
- St. Paul & Centre
- Keswick & Wyman Park
- & the bike racks at Penn Station
The new locations are based on suggestions from Baltimore’s bike community (that means ‘you’)!
So click the BIKE COUNTS SIGN-UP page at the top of the blog and I’ll put together the schedule for everyone. Bike traffic verifiers EARN TEN (10) POINTS in the Bike Month Challenge EVERY TIME YOU COUNT! (Pictures encouraged, of course)
