GLENDALE — Shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday, a bicyclist sped through Glenoaks Boulevard and Grandview Avenue. Minutes later, two women donning workout attire jogged past the same corner.
In turn, Pasadena City College student Alberto Luna made sure to mark three hash marks on his clipboard. Luna also noted the direction they were traveling and the fact that the cyclist was wearing a helmet and traveling on the street as opposed to the sidewalk.
Luna was one of dozens of volunteers manning street corners throughout Glendale on Saturday morning for the city's second annual bicyclist and pedestrian count. More than 90 volunteers took part in counting during Wednesday's morning and afternoon commute times and Saturday morning.
"The idea is that you are trying to capture a typical day," said Colin Bogart, a liaison with the nonprofit Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition who's been working with city officials to implement a Safe and Healthy Streets plan.
