 Regional Bicycle Plan


The vision for bicycling in the PAG region has long focused on safer bicycle travel everyone. This current bike plan, the sixth of its kind since 1975, continues to serve as a guide for continuing progress toward that regional approach. It was developed by PAG in 2009 with participation from a plan advisory task force and in cooperation with local jurisdictions, the public and bicycle interest groups.

The plan includes dozens of specific goals,
such as:

  • Increasing regional bikeway miles to 1,165 by 2020 and to 1,581 by 2030.
  • Maintaining and improving the region's League of American Bicyclists “Bicycle Friendly Communities” gold designation, as well as Bicycling Magazine’s “Top Ten Best Cities for Cycling” award for the region.
  • Increasing the region-wide bicycle commute mode share by 2020, and again by 2030.

It also includes dozens of targeted actions to pursue, such as:

  • Development of land use policies, including zoning and subdivision regulations, which will accommodate and promote bicycle use in and to activity centers, neighborhoods, schools and parks.
  • Expansion of street-sweeping programs on designated bike routes, sweeping all bike lanes/shoulders/routes at least every other week.
  • Provision of a striped shoulder of at least four feet on uncurbed roadways, or a bike/shoulder lane of at least five feet on curbed roadways, on all new, rehabilitated, or reconstructed arterial and collector roadways.
