If you have ever thought that the world needed more of your ability to count bikes, today is your lucky day!

The Minneapolis Public Works has announced this year's Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count.

Now in its tenth year, the department is in need of volunteers to count the number of – you guessed it – bicyclists and pedestrians that are located around the city.

The main days for counting will be Sept. 13-15 with shifts from 4-6 p.m.

Officials hold bicycle counts to keep track of non-motorized traffic on the street.

Updated counts allow for planning and building infrastructure for both bicyclists and pedestrians, as well as tracking what works and what needs to change.

This year the Minneapolis Public Works is also teaming up with Hennepin County to get bicycle counts in some first-ring suburbs.

Those who are interested in volunteering any of those days can register online by clicking here.
