    We the members of Aachieve Academy have organised an event called “Cycle On Bangalore - A fight against Pollution”, a cycling trail, on January 16, 2011. Some of the big names have confirmed their presence for the event. A trail will be held which is open for the public. A participation of 500 members has been set as our target.

  2. 2. Columbia is a small university city<br />Population 100,000 - hills - weather extremes<br />Not densely populated: urban area 8 x 8 miles (twice the footprint of San Francisco proper)<br />Downtown grid area + urban sprawl + barriers (interstates)<br />University of Missouri – 30,000 students<br />Bicycle mode share 1.5% +<br />
  3. 3. Approach<br />Create an integrated, City-wide system<br />Add bike lanes wherever possible<br />System should be self-explanatory, understandable by bicyclists and motorists<br />Where possible, markings for the bike system should be on the street<br />Innovate and “borrow” ideas from other cities<br />

  11. 11. 3. BLIP - Bike Lane w/ Infrequent Parking<br />Choice is not “parking or no parking” in bike lanes, it is “bike lanes or SLM’s” <br />Considered only when parking is infrequent<br />Informal assessment of novice riders behavior:<br />Before striping: hug curb, swing out around parked cars<br />After striping: ride in bike lane (near curb) look before crossing the line into the vehicle lane<br />Added benefit: fewer cars park there after striping<br />Look behind!<br />
  12. 12. Programming: 4 Step Process<br />Create Awareness: <br />mass media, controversy<br />2. Foster Understanding of the program, <br />Create positive attitude: mass media<br />3.

  15. 15. 7. 6’ Advisory Bicycle Lanes on Bike Blvd.<br />Heavy “traffic calming” on bike blvd:<br />Street murals at several intersections<br />Yellow center striping added<br />Center 6’ bike lanes created with white skip striping (“Advisory” or “Priority” lane)<br />Will have SLM (Sharrows) centered in bike lane<br />
  16. 16. Summary<br />Public Works Department in charge of Implementation<br />Substantial Promotion and Education effort<br />Major capital trail and sidewalk projects just over half of budget (and most difficult to implement) <br />Bike lanes are the preferred treatment for on-street treatments (considered even when light parking exists)<br />Experimenting with approaches – currently just site specific. Determining what should be city-wide treatments<br />
