Bikes Count: 2022 Data Competition Launches
In honor of National Bike Month, we are excited to announce that the League is once again partnering with our friends at Eco-Counter to host the Bikes Count Data Competition! The 2022 data competition is open for submissions now through the end of June, and winners will be announced in July.
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 communication tools with your data;
- best-practice training on analyzing and communicating bike data;
- … and more!
The competition is open to U.S.-based organizations with any kind of bike data and Bicycle Friendly America program participants. From automated count data to GPS traces, survey data to manual counts, we want to see it! Two winners will be selected: one non-profit advocacy non-profit and one Bicycle Friendly America organization.
Last year, the League and Eco-Counter joined forces to host the first-ever Bikes Count data competition. The two winners of the 2021 ‘Bikes Count’ competition were the City of Charlottesville in Virginia and Treasure Valley Cycling Alliance (TVCA) in Boise, Idaho! As winners, Charlottesville and TVCA received support and assistance from Eco-Counter to get the most out of their cycling data and to use those insights for meaningful, bike-friendly change in their community – this year it’s your chance to receive the same support!
To apply for the 2022 competition, fill out an application in the link below. The application isn’t too long. We just want to hear a little bit about your organization, what kind of data you have, and (most importantly) how this data will make a difference in your community.
2022 applications are due by 5pm ET on Thursday, June 30th. Winners will be announced in July! Contact [email protected] with any questions.
