As communities have put bikeway plans into effect, the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI) has learned what works and what doesn’t — how to plan effectively, design correctly and make investments that get results. IBPI distilled those lessons into this course, which covers the fundamentals of bikeway design and planning through an intensive week of interactive classroom, field tours, and design exercises.
Instructors draw from their years of experience, along with project examples, to highlight practical applications of the principles and techniques covered. The pioneers and leading practitioners in the field will teach the fundamentals of bikeway planning and design through an intensive week of classroom sessions and tours. The instruction and interaction with other participants will bring you up to speed on innovative practice and research and teach you the skills and techniques you need to get started on your next project.
Over the years, the Portland area has implemented numerous types of innovative bicycle facilities and treatments, providing a unique “living laboratory” to study. Daily field tours provide first-hand experience with these facilities and projects discussed in the classroom. These tours showcase not just the operational qualities but also how bikeway planning affects community livability and economic development.
