Streets that are safe and comfortable for all ages and abilities are critical for urban cycling mobility. Building bicycle infrastructure that meets the needs of more riders is essential for cities seeking to improve street safety, provide more equitable access to jobs and opportunities, and bolster local economies.
Join this public webinar for an overview of the newest NACTO design resource, Designing for All Ages & Abilities: Contextual Guidance for High-Comfort Bicycle Facilities. Developed by cities, for cities, the document provides concrete guidance for matching bicycle infrastructure to streets, and identifying common sources of stress that deter the majority of would-be riders. Crucially, the guide makes an equity case for setting an "All Ages & Abilities" benchmark—from promoting mobility for the growing senior population to improving the safety of bicyclists riding on inadequate infrastructure.
