NEW — Noon Sept. 24, 2015
About 400 volunteers are needed to help count the number of people who ride bicycles or walk to their destinations during an annual three-day survey, starting Sept. 29.
In 2014, more than 72,000 bicyclists and pedestrians were counted by volunteers in communities across Washington. Volunteer registration is now open and many locations still have shifts that have not been filled.

Bike, cars can get along better
May 16 was Bike to Work Day, and thousands of two-wheeled commuters took to the road. The mere thought of a cyclist can start some drivers’ blood boiling, and cyclists, too, find themselves frustrated by inconsiderate motorists.
Bikes on the roads are here to stay, and indeed, if current trends hold, will be an ever-growing presence. More work must be done to help bikes and cars co-exist, and two of the biggest missing ingredients are predictability and education.
