Abstract

STUDIES SUGGEST that if a city wishes to significantly enlarge its cycling population, it must provide a useful network of low-stress cycling facilities. In addition to proper bike paths and bicycle boulevards, such a network usually contains cycle tracks, also known as protected lanes. Cycle tracks are bike lanes that are located within vehicular rights of way but designed in a manner that limits potential conflict between drivers and cyclists, usually by placing some sort of barrier between driving and cycling.
