Cities for Cycling

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

NACTO’s Cities for Cycling peer network is a vital resource for city staff to engage with one another, and rapidly raise the state of practice for bikeway design in North America.

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


Bicycling is good for cities. Providing safe, comfortable, convenient places to bike is a cost-effective way for American municipalities to improve mobility, livability and public health for everyone using city streets.
