Volunteers are needed to help count bicyclists and pedestrians in cities across Washington from Tuesday through Thursday to help the state gauge demand, measure the benefits of prior investments, and design future projects for nonmotorized travel, according to the state Department of Transportation.

WSDOT and the Cascade Bicycle Club started recruiting volunteers in late August for this sixth annual survey.

Those interested can go to WSDOT’s website at or contact Cascade Bicycle Club at or 206-861-9890.
