Collect data to identify popular bikeways and the impact of Bike 2015 Plan strategies.

Strategy 1.5.2 Details

Chapter 1Bikeway 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 5Help current and potential bicyclists choose safe, convenient routes.

Strategy 2

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 MeasureCollect appropriate data on an annual basis, beginning in 2007.
Tracker NotesI 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.
