Bicycle Network: Bike Futures Services
Super Sunday 2011
The second Super Sunday Recreation Count is on Sunday 6 November, from 11am-3pm.
2011 Trail count a success
21 November 2011. Early results of this year's count suggest strength in trail use across the board, despite the muggy an ominous weather on 6 November. While lots of sites were added and many changed from last year's pilot program, at a couple of sites that were replicated, the results are as follows:
At Station Pier in Port Melbourne 698 bike riders were counted during the four hours between 11am - 3pm, while in 2010 597 riders were out and about. This year, 1393 walkers were counted passing through this site which was a steep drop from 2010 when 2135 walkers were recorded.
At the start of the Gardiners Creek Trail at the junction with the Main Yarra/Capital City Trail 842 bikes were counted compared to 1034 in 2010, though comments from riders at the site noted a perceived drop-off from 'normal' conditions.
The data from across the Melbourne Trail Network is currently being analysed and will be available to participating Councils and Parks Victoria early in the New Year.

3 November 2011. Super Sunday 2011 is this weekend. If you haven't had a chance to book a site to count yet, don't worry! There are a handful of sites still available for you to count. Doing so will help improve the world of bike riding and gives you a chance to raise money for your club.
There are some sites left along the Western Ring Road path, Eastlink, and the Lilydale - Warburton Trail, as well as individual ones elsewhere. Green means four hours available, yellow means two hours.
