Pedal Poll/Sondo Vélo

Canada's national bicycle count – June 4 to 9, 2024

Thank you for participating in Pedal Poll/Sondo Vélo 2024! Watch this space to access the results and analysis.

34 focus communities across Canada

Multiple count locations in each focus community

Five two-hour counting shifts at each count location

Data supports cycling advocacy in your community

Pedal Poll/Sondo Vélo 2024 is taking place June 4 to 9. The count is a chance to evaluate the state of cycling in our communities. Together we get a “snapshot” of what cycling looks like in communities across Canada, at the same time, year over year. 

The data collected helps build the case for more, and better, cycling infrastructure. This growing data set is there for everyone to use to advocate for access to safe cycling choices for everyone, everywhere.

Results and analysis from past Pedal Polls

The results from the 2022 and 2023 counts have been analysed and are available as a series of tables, infographics and charts for each focus community. You are welcome to download your community’s results and share them widely. 

With this third year of counting we are just starting to witness longitudinal trends in the data. This demonstrates to us all the critical importance of going out to count at the same locations and times year after year so that we can get higher-quality observations. 

Pedal Poll/Sondo Vélo is a project of Vélo Canada Bikes, funded in part by the Government of Canada through the Active Transportation Fund administered by Infrastructure Canada in 2023 and by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in 2021. The project has also received in-kind support from local cycling advocacy organizations, the CounterPoint app team, hundreds of community volunteers and the Cities, Health & Active Transportation Research Lab at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, BC (2021 and 2023) and the Healthy Populations Institute at Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS (2021-2023). Data for 2022 and 2023 were analyzed by Madeleine Bonsma-Fisher.
