Bicycle Planning Safety (AIA# TCEBIK) (3 credit hours/3 HSW Hours)
The purpose of this course is to provide guidelines for planning of safe on-road and shared use bicycle facilities.  It will provide planners and designers the information to develop the safest most efficient facilities possible.
 
Roadway design standards are discussed as they relate to incorporating the design of bicycle facilities into roadway projects.
 
There is a growing need for designers, citizens and others to have a common vocabulary, common concepts and common knowledge of successful bicyclist systems and facilities in different places.  Bicycling facilities planning is still not offered in most college and university curricula.  This omission results in a wide variance in planning and design concepts, facilities placement and final design by individual designers.
 
We have become such a nation of specialists.  Many planners lack the opportunity to see a project from concept to concrete.  This lack of continuity is complicated by the tendency of planners to be assigned a vast territory, which means they rarely live in the neighborhood or even in the city they are helping to design.  A consultant in Atlanta, Georgia may be completing a plan for a project in Ft. Myers, Florida.  This course allows all of us to have a common general knowledge of how bicycling facilities work.  In this way specific projects are more likely to do what they are intended to do – serve the public with well planned, well located, affordable, safe, secure and friendly environments.

Students will understand
 
·Background and history of bicycling is discussed including the dramatic increase in non-motorized travel from the 1970’s to now
 
·Bicycle planning is an important component in roadway planning because it provides for a complete/comprehensive bicycle facility for transportation and recreational activities
 
·Comprehensive community planning can be used to plan for other transportation modes concurrently with the planning of public works projects
 
·Selection and development of options can be conducted after an inventory of current facilities is conducted when inadequacies can be addressed
 
·Bicycle safety as it relates to crashes are often associated with age, experience and ability
 
·Common bicycle-motor vehicle crashes can be broken down into 8 common types which are described in detail
