About Super Tuesday
Learn more about the Super Tuesday project.
Super Tuesday is an annual bike commute count that has been running since 2007.
It provides participating councils with reliable annual figures of bicycle commuters and their movements on roads and bike paths.
The event aims to answer two questions:
- How many riders are there?
- Which routes are riders using?
Super Tuesday is held on the first Tuesday in March from 7am – 9am for Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia, ACT, South Australia and Tasmania. Super Tuesday is also held in September in Queensland, Northern Territory and north coast New South Wales to avoid the wet season in March.
The count is conducted by volunteers who record rider movements on a count sheet then entered online. Bicycle Network then verifies and analyses the data and submit their findings and recommendations to councils in a written report.
Benefits for Councils
Super Tuesday data is accurate, relevant, up-to-date and for those councils who participate in Super Tuesday for consecutive years – cumulative, making the Super Tuesday data an important tool for councils, who are responsible for providing bike riding facilities for their constituents.

Benefits for Riders
By establishing a regular and consistent measure of bike riding, we can show how many people are riding and where they are riding. This strengthens the case for further investment in better bicycle facilities.
Help get better bicycle facilities by volunteering to be a Super Tuesday counter. Your contribution can also turn into support for your bike group or school. During registration, every Super Tuesday counter has an opportunity to nominate a Bicycle User Group or community group to receive $50-. (If a counter does not nominate a BUG or community group, their funds will go to the governing bicycle network organisation.)

Benefits for Supporting Organisations
Super Tuesday is a simple and easy way to fundraise for your organisation. We invite Bicycle User Groups, bicycle clubs and community groups to register as supporting organisations and encourage their members to register as Super Tuesday counters.
