DescriptionThis 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 intended for persons charged with development or design of high-quality bikeway facilities. It may also meet the training needs of 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.

What You Will LearnTrainees will gain an in-depth understanding of the design considerations that should guide the development of bikeways that consider safety, provide attractiveness and comfort for new users, and encourage increasing bicycle usage. Trainees will be better prepared to develop quality designs, apply design principles to inform project planning phases, and address issues that may limit effectiveness of existing facilities. While the course is designed for persons who may be charged with design of bicycling facilities, it will offer value and insight to persons who are interested in or charged with oversight of the project selection, refinement, and design process.
Who Should AttendThis 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 designers, bikeway planners and other professionals will find value in learning principles of how to design for safety, to encourage new users, and to retrofit existing facilities that do not meet user expectations.
