This new, in-depth class on design of facilities for bicycling addresses both legacy facilities and innovative designs that are being developed within many communities at this time. This course will orient participants with fundamentals and details of bikeway design, ranging from application of traditional designs (bike routes, lanes, paths) to innovative facilities that are growing in popularity, such as separated/protected bikeways and special shared treatments. The course will cover a wide range of subjects ranging from user types and preferences, operator characteristics, to detailed design approaches. The course includes numerous examples of legacy and innovative facilities, including examples from European cities that experience extremely high bicycle usage for all ages and abilities.
The course is developed to meet the training needs of persons charged with preliminary planning, development, or design of high-quality bikeway facilities. It will also be valuable for persons responsible for planning bicycle friendly networks, interested in learning how to deliver quality facilities, or desiring tools to remodel existing facilities to better serve user needs.
This course is most appropriate for persons interested in understanding how to design a facility that meets user needs, encourages additional usage and growth in bicycling, and preserves or improves safety for all users. While appropriate and intended for
