“How can we design bike routes through mainly residential neighborhoods?”
Biking is a great activity. It can burn calories, bring people together, and reduce traffic all while being sustainable for the planet. Sometimes, people may want to do this activity in their own neighborhood. So how can we accomplish this? Well, let’s use our urban planning mindset to find out. We know that using signs, pavement markings, and lower traffic speed and volume limits can minimize the amount of traffic coming in and make it safer for bicycles. So what if we were to implement all of these together? Well, this is how Bike Boulevards are formed and is one of the ways that we can make our residential communities safer for biking.
