Volunteers are invited to register for a location to support Bicycle Network's upcoming Super Sunday active transport survey on Sunday 12 November.
Counters around Australia will take up positions alongside paths and trails to record the volume and behaviour of bike riders, walkers, runners, dog walkers and micro-mobility users.
The data they collect on recreational active travel helps councils and planners develop transport policies and prioritise infrastructure projects that benefit their communities.
The survey runs for three hours in the morning and Super Sunday volunteers receive a $120 credit towards a Bicycle Network membership, or a donation on their behalf to a charity, school, sports club or not-for-profit organisation.
Sites are starting to fill up but there are still plenty of locations up for grabs round Australia. In particular, we have need of helping hands in the following council areas:
- Whitsunday (QLD)
- Mornington Peninsula, Campaspe, Banyule, Manningham, Whittlesea, Wyndham, Bass Coast, Port Phillip, Melbourne (VIC)
- Newcastle, Wagga Wagga, Sydney -> Randwick, Sutherland, Canterbury-Bankstown, Bayside, Willoughby (NSW)
- Perth -> Belmont, Vincent (WA)
- Adelaide -> Mitcham, Marion (SA)
If you'd like to get involved as a volunteer for Super Sunday 2023, visit our interactive map here, click on an available site in blue and fill out your contact details. A count sheet and instructions will be sent to you ahead of the day.
The City of Vincent in Perth will hold its Super Sunday counts the week later, on 19 November. Register here.
