|Chapter 1||Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.|
|Objective 5||Help current and potential bicyclists choose safe, convenient routes.|
Collect data to identify popular bikeways and the impact of Bike 2015 Plan strategies.
Data needs include bike counts on roads and trails, counts before and after a bikeway is constructed, and surveys to determine what facilities would have the greatest use.
|Peformance Measure||Collect appropriate data on an annual basis, beginning in 2007.|
|Tracker Notes||I believe annual counting started in 2008, but is sporadic and inconsistent and at a limited number of locations. A limited (full of gaps) cordon count of the Loop was started in 2011. In 2012, CDOT will start a monthly count at six locations. See Bike Counts.|
