CHAPEL HILL, NC — The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, in its continued effort to disseminate information and technical assistance on pedestrian and bicycle safety, has launched its redesigned bicycling Web site at

New features of the site include:

  • A centralized, Web-based Library of bicycling-related materials and documents compiled by practitioners and researchers.
  • A searchable database of Frequently Asked Questions pertaining to bicycle safety. If users do not find their answer within the database, there is a mechanism for them to submit a question to the PBIC.
  • A searchable database of upcoming events and training opportunities.
  • A compilation of downloadable bike maps from around the country.
  • A News Room with PBIC press releases, resources for the media and recent news articles. Users can also sign up to received email updates and news from the Center.

The new site was developed with input from site users and PBIC stakeholders. Revised and new content on the site was developed in conjunction with bicycling safety experts from across the country. New and updated content includes more detailed discussion of plans and policies that support bicycling, resources for bicyclists, information on how to find bicycle data and statistics, tools for identifying bicyclist concerns, and strategies as well as guidance to assist communities in building bike-friendly communities.

"We are excited to launch a new Web site that brings together a wealth of information in a more streamlined design for ease in use," said Charlie Zegeer, director of the PBIC. "Among the informative and user-friendly features, we are now able to offer a searchable database of resources and research in one centralized location."

The redesign of the site is funded through $1.6 million in renewal funding the Center received from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center is maintained by the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center with funding from FHWA.
