Long Beach is looking for a few good men and women to be volunteers for their upcoming fourth annual Bicycle Count. Count events will happen on Thursday, October 20 and Sunday, October 23.

They're seeking 300 volunteers to help conduct bike and pedestrian counts at more than 35 locations throughout Long Beach. There are several locations and training sessions available to sign up for.
"These counts help our City acquire a better understanding of locations of bike and pedestrian activity, and which areas and infrastructure are used the most," explained Vice Mayor Suja Lowenthal. "Ultimately, the counts will help determine where bike and pedestrian improvements need to be made."
