This training will assist planners and designers in learning how to apply the existing standards and how to deal with other technical issues involved. The availability of Federal, State, and local transportation funding for bicycle facilities that serve transportation and recreational users is resulting in a dramatic increase in the number of bicycling (and shared use) facilities being planned and built. Although there are no Federal design standards for bicycle facilities, the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities, or a modification thereof, serves as a design guide. As with most guides, the AASHTO guide cannot address every possible scenario so designers often need to apply engineering judgment where specific information is not provided. The training fee includes a copy of the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • List the needs of bicyclists as transportation facility users
  • Identify common roadway and traffic conditions that affect bicyclists
  • Describe the characteristics of a roadway and a shared-use path that are designed to accommodate bicyclists
  • List the benefits to the transportation system of accommodating bicyclists with different abilities
  • Recognize opportunities to accommodate bicyclists during the planning, design, construction, and operational phases of a project


Federal, State, or local engineers with planning, design, construction, or maintenance responsibilities; bicycle specialists, transportation planners, landscape architects, as well as decisionmakers at the project planning level.
