ST. CLOUD — A recent bicycle count by the St. Cloud Area Planning Organization shows a high number people riding bikes near St. Cloud State University.

The three-day count in September is the third one conducted by the APO. The first one was done in September 2012 and the other was done in May of this year.

APO Senior Transportation Planner Angie Stenson says they will use the data to try to build a database of the trail usage in the area.

The APO took counts at 10 locations across the St. Cloud metro area including, the Beaver Island Trail, SCSU pedestrian bridge, Pinecone Road trail and Lake Wobegon Trail.

The data is also being sent to the Minnesota Department of Transportation for their use.

Among the findings, a high number of people are using the SCSU pedestrian bridge and Division Street and 5th Avenue North crossing. Also, more people tend to get out on their bikes in the spring than in the fall.
