Between June 1st & 6th, 2021 over 1,000 volunteers in 68 communities across Canada were out counting cyclists. Our study targeted 14 Focus Communities for a more targeted approach, to get a better understanding of what cycling looks like.
PP/SV 2021 Summary Results (infographic)
While we did more detailed and aggregated analysis on our Focus Communities (FC), we also took the results of any community where more than 100 cyclists were counted and created a count profile for each of those communities.
Volunteering to count #
In 2021 there were 14 Focus Communities VCB partnered with. But volunteers were counting in 68 communities across the country. Pedal Poll/Sondo Vélo has now grown to 30 Focus Communities. Increasing the number of Focus Communities will give everyone a better picture of cycling in Canada for 2022. The results of 2022 will also help grow Pedal Poll/Sondo Vélo in 2023 and beyond.
The data collected, whether in a Focus Community or not, helps build the case for more, and better, cycling infrastructure. The data is there for everyone to use to advocate for access to safe cycling choices for everyone, everywhere.
