Super Tuesday is Australia’s biggest annual commuter bike count, conducted each year on the first Tuesday in March for two hours from 7am to 9am.

The count is undertaken by volunteers who record volumes, gender and movement flow of cyclists at chosen survey locations.

Super Tuesday provides reliable annual data on bicycle commuters and their movements during morning peak-hour. The data collected can track long-term patterns and help the Council plan for improvements to the cycling network.

In March this year, sixteen intersections in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters were counted.
