The City of Long Beach is seeking volunteers for its 6th annual Bicycle Count on Thursday, Oct. 17, or Sunday, Oct. 20.
“As Long Beach gets more and more bike-friendly, these counts help us acquire a better understanding of bicycle and pedestrian activity, and where bicycle and pedestrian improvements need to be made,” Mayor Bob Foster said.
