May is National Bike Month, aka our favourite month!
In honour of this special time of the year, we’re excited to announce that we’re once again partnering with our friends at The League of American Bicyclists to host the second Bikes Count Data Competition! The 2022 data competition is open for submissions until June 30, and winners will be announced in July.
What’s in the competition for you
Are you looking to use bike data to make an impact in your community? Have you been putting off analyzing and communicating that messy Excel sheet on your desktop? Do you have some bike data that never really got used or made a splash? Send us your data!
Through a competitive application process, two winners will receive from Eco-Counter:
- Expert cleaning and analysis of your data from our data services team to extract key trends and insights;
- custom branded infographics, graphs, social media cards, and other communications materials with your data;
- best-practice training on analyzing and communicating bike data;
- … and more!
The contest is open to U.S. organizations with any type of bicycle data and Bicycle Friendly America program participants. From automated count data to GPS traces, survey data, and manual counts: Send it to us, we want to see!
Two winners will be selected: one nonprofit advocacy group and one Bicycle Friendly America organization.
How to apply for the 2022 Bikes Count Data Competition
The first Bikes Count Data Competition was held in 2021, with the City of Charlottesville, in Virginia, and the Treasure Valley Cycling Alliance (TVCA), of Boise, Idaho, as the winners. They received support and assistance from us to make the most of their cycling data and use those insights to make meaningful, bike-friendly changes in their community. Now’s your chance to get the same support!
It’s easy to participate: just fill out this application – it’s not long or complicated, we just want to know a little about your organization, the data you’ve collected, and most importantly, how that data will make a difference in your community.
2022 applications can be submitted until Thursday, June 30 at 5pm ET. Winners will be announced in July! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions and good luck!
