8-80 Bikeways

Designing Protected Bikeways and Bicycle Boulevards to Accommodate a Broader Range of Users

Protected bikeways and bicycle boulevards are a key catalyst to making street safer and more attractive to people of different ages, skill levels, genders and backgrounds. Studies show that the main reason why people do not ride bicycles is that they do not feel safe riding on the current streets. 8-80 Bikeways will explore initiatives underway in the US to create more protected bikeways and connect facilities through busy intersections, looking at design challenges as well as the trade-offs that these types of projects involve.
