Check out the DRAFT Cambridge Bicycle Network Plan

Start at the Bicycle Plan Overview to see what kind of information was used to build the plan.

  1. Get an overview of the Draft Network Plan.
  2. Find out what is meant by Bicycle Level of Comfort.
  3. See what's on the Short-term Action Items page, based on your specific comments.
  4. Delve into what the Dreaming of Bicycling Survey results reveal about what cyclists think of bicycle infrastructure.
  5. Provide your thoughts on the Draft Plan!

Last spring, we asked people for ideas and input on what would make Cambridge the most bicycle friendly city on the planet. The response was tremendous: 730 people responded to the survey; 570 commented on the WikiMap; hundreds gave input to the paper map sessions throughout the city; and dozens attended the June Open House.

We took all that information, together with analytical data used to develop a Bicycle Level of Comfort Index, crash mapping, and project planning and implementation underway, to create a DRAFT Bicycle Network Priority Map. This map will be used as the basis for where we need to focus our efforts in creating a more complete and bicycle friendly network to enable everyone – whether they are 8 or 80 years old – to be able to choose to bicycle comfortably and safely throughout the city.
In this phase of the Plan, we are asking you to review how we have gotten here, take a look at the DRAFT Priority Plan, and provide your feedback so we can see what people think works, or doesn’t, or where we may have missed some key priorities.
