Bike-loving Territorians are being offered the chance to help transform their streets by volunteering to be part of Australia's biggest count of bike riders, on Tuesday, September 3.
Katherine locals who volunteer to count bike riders will also earn a $60 donation for a charity or local community group of their choice.
As part of Bicycle Network's ninth Super Tuesday North, local volunteers are being recruited to help count bike riders at more than 240 locations across the Territory and Queensland during the morning commute.
The information collected is then passed on to participating councils who use the data to identify which routes need improvement and to track the success of previous upgrades. It also helps Bicycle Network build a national snapshot of bike riding participation each year.
Super Tuesday North is the second half of a national count which also occurs in Australia's southern states in March.
This year, volunteers are needed across five local council areas in the Northern Territory, including Darwin, Alice Springs, Palmerston, Tennant Creek and Katherine.
Bicycle Network spokesperson Anthea Hargreaves said that volunteering to help on Super Tuesday is not only a great way to make it easier for people to ride a bike, it's an easy way to raise money for your local sporting club or charity.
Registrations for Super Tuesday North volunteers are now open here.
