DESIGN STANDARDS FOR CYCLING facilities in the United States are advancing at a pace unmatched by any other aspect of urban planning. We can hope that they will eventually achieve the quality of those found in Europe, and receive a similar share of street space and public works budget. In the meantime, certain configurations and measurements have begun to proliferate, and they constitute a best practice of sorts when it comes to serving cyclists. These are well documented in the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide, and are further elaborated in the paragraphs that follow.
