BIKEABILITY CHECKLIST

BIKEABILITY CHECKLIST

How bikeable is your community?

Riding a bike is fun!
 
Bicycling is a great way to get around and to get your daily dose of physical activity. It’s good for the environment, and it can save you money. No wonder many communities are encouraging people to ride their bikes more often!
 
Can you get to where you want to go by bike?
 
Some communities are more bikeable than others: how does yours rate? Read over the questions in this checklist and then take a ride in your community, perhaps to the local shops, to visit a friend, or even to work. See if you can get where you want to go by bicycle, even if you are just riding around the neighborhood to get some exercise.
 
Before you ride, make sure your bike is in good working order, put on a helmet, and be sure you can manage the ride. While you are riding obey all traffic laws.
 
At the end of your ride, answer each question and, based on your opinion, circle an overall rating for each question. You can also note any problems you encountered by checking the appropriate box(es). Be sure to make a careful note of any specific locations that need improvement. Add up the numbers to see how you rated your ride. Then, turn to the pages that show you how to begin to improve those areas where you gave your community a low score.
