This Sunday, hundreds of volunteers will set out across shared paths and trails as part of Australia’s biggest recreational count, Bicycle Network’s Super Sunday.
Over four hours, volunteers in VIC, QLD, NSW, NT, WA and SA will monitor and count the number of people riding, running or walking from key vantage points on shared paths and trails.
The count aims to provide consistent and reliable figures of recreational bike riders and other off-road path users.
Run by Bicycle Network, the data is collected on behalf of local councils to help identify how they can improve facilities and encourage more people to be physically active.
An annual community event, Super Sunday volunteers are rewarded for their time with an $120 donation to a local charity, non-profit, sporting club or community group of their choice.
