The Effects of Bicycle Accomodations on Bicycle/Motor Vehicle Safety and Traffic Operations

Federal Highway Administration

This report presents one bicycle planning process, offers and overview of European bicycle facilities, presents the results of preliminary field studies, and describes a methodology (including a set of tables) for use in determining when to apply each type of bicycle facility.

The report also discusses the goals of bicycle programs as being either the accommodation of existing users or the promotion of use by new riders, and the implications of these goals for facility design. The concept of a "design driver" for bicycle facilities is also addressed as it affects facility design.
