      Thanks for the heads up on this, Dave.  I sent a letter to Beth Isler at MAPC suggesting that this would not be a valid bicycle count, and asking what they intended to use the data for.

      That is bizarre to count road riders on what is essentially a four day weekend. There will likely be many folks who don't usually ride out on the 4 RJ, but a relatively small proportion of the usual commuters on Friday.

      Bicycle/Pedestrian Data-Collection Drive

      As part of its Livability Program, the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) conducts ongoing bicycle and pedestrian planning activities that aim to increase biking and walking by improving access to safe, healthy, efficient, nonmotorized transportation options in the Boston region.


      To support these planning efforts, the Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS, staff to the MPO) is recruiting volunteers to help collect bicycle and pedestrian data in early July.


      Counts will be taken for both off-road trails and on-road street segments during the following dates:
      • Thursday, July 4, and Friday, July 5
      • Saturday, July 6


      If you would like to volunteer or ask questions, please contact Beth Isler at bisler@....


      Thank you.
