Are you good at golf?
Not your swing necessarily, or putting either, but at scoring?
It turns out all that 1+1+1+1 is a lot like counting bicycles as they traverse the city.
If this includes you, do we have a job for you!
As part of the City of Newport Beach’s Bicycle Master Plan, we’ll be doing bicycle counts to track usage across the City. We need volunteers to assist with the count effort.
Here’s how you qualify:
Can you count? I mean on either 7-9am Thursday October 17 or 10am-1pm Saturday October 19? Maybe both times?
Good! You’re in!
Now we don’t just throw you out there with a clipboard and sunscreen! You’ll get training!
Volunteers must attend training on the counting procedure at 6:30pm Thursday, October 10th in the Community Room at the Newport Beach Civic Center. At the training, volunteers will be assigned count locations throughout the city and given count forms and instructions. Bring your own damn clipboard.
HOW TO SIGN UP: If you’re available, email Brad Sommers by Tuesday October 8. Tell him, “Count me in.” Indicate whether you can count one or both times.
Questions? I probably left out something important, so call Brad at 949-644-3326.
Thanks for helping to improve cycling within Newport Beach.
