Cities for Cycling

debug msg: this block is Large Text Block, Left Aligned

NACTO’s Cities for Cycling Peer Network brings together professionals in city transportation who work to strengthen the conditions and culture of biking in their communities. Originally formed for peers to document, review, and implement global lessons in bicycle transportation practices in U.S. cities, this network is now a resource for practitioners to share ideas and best practices being developed within North America as well.

Expanding in tandem with the implementation and refinement of bike infrastructure in the U.S. and Canada, NACTO’s Cities for Cycling Peer Network is a vital resource for city staff to engage with one another around the rapidly advancing state of practice for bikeway design.

Since the network was convened in 2010 to develop the Urban Bikeway Design Guide, peers meet regularly to discuss experiences and lessons learned from their work, assist with the development of design guidance, and participate in highly-tailored and technical programming opportunities, including webinars, digital design charrettes, in-city roundtables and roadshows, and NACTO’s annual Designing Cities Conference.

Why?

Bicycling is good for cities. Providing safe, comfortable, convenient bicycling facilities is a cost-effective way for American municipalities to improve mobility, livability and public health while reducing traffic congestion and CO2 emissions.
