Every year Boulder Transportation holds a downtown bike count. This data is used to help find out if there is adequate bike parking where the bikes are located along with other statistics number crunching. Right outside my office the last 2 months I have had to resort to locking my bike to a random post because the dedicated bike racks across the street are constantly full.

The City of Boulder is requesting volunteers to help count the number of bicycles parked in the downtown area. The purpose of the count is to evaluate the available bicycle parking supply relative to the current demand and determine where additional bicycle parking may be necessary.
Volunteers will be asked to walk along a set number of specific city blocks in the downtown area and record the number of bicycles parked at these locations. Participants should expect to spend approximately one hour walking and counting bikes, and should plan to bring water and wear appropriate walking shoes.
Volunteers are still needed for:
Saturday, Aug. 6, from 11 a.m. to noon.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Chris Hagelin, Senior Transportation Planner, at 303-441-1832 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit GoBoulder.net.
