Stage a Share the Trail campaign to reduce the number and severity of conflicts between bicyclists and other trail users.

Strategy 5.2.3 Details

Chapter 5Education: Education is a key component to achieving the Bike 2015 Plan's goals to increase the number of trips by bicycle and improve the safety of the bicycling environment. Many people think that bicycling in Chicago is dangerous. This concern keeps people from bicycling more, or at all. A key way to address this concern is through education, particularly through the six objectives identified in this chapter.
Objective 2Deliver bicycle education programs and campaigns to target audiences.

Strategy 3

Stage a Share the Trail campaign to reduce the number and severity of conflicts between bicyclists and other trail users.

One-third of reported crashes occur on trails. Establish Trail Ambassadors, based on the Bicycling Ambassadors model.

Peformance MeasureHire 10 graduates of the After School Matters bicycle program to be Trail Ambassadors during the summer, beginning in 2006. Conduct an annual Share the Trail campaign, beginning in 2006, so that 75 percent of surveyed bicyclists can identify the campaign's message and at least 50 percent say they will practice the advertised behaviors. Submit an annual report to the Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Council, with recommendations for the upcoming year, beginning in 2006.
