Bicycle Network Plan


Planning has Begun for the Cambridge Bicycle Network Plan

Cambridge has a Bicycle Friendly City GOLD rating but we are continuing to improve our city for bicycling!

Here is your chance to say what you would like the future to look like. What would make this the most bicycle friendly city on the planet? What are the ways, small or large, short-term or long-term, that would make a difference for you?

Towards a Bikeable Future (Cambridge's Bicycle Master Plan, currently in process) will use your input to guide bicycle planning in Cambridge. This plan is intended to be a visionary document that will help Cambridge be a true “8-80” City, one where everyone -- whether they are eight or 80 years old -- will be able to choose to bicycle comfortably and safely throughout the city.

The Bicycle Network Plan is a core component of the broader ambition in Towards a Bikeable Future. Click on the links below to provide your input, check back here for further information, and provide your email so you can receive updates about the plan.

Bike Plan Update - August 2014

Thank you to the hundreds of people who have participated so far for their interest in and contributions to the Cambridge Bicycle Network Plan! Over 60 people attended the Open House in June, 570 people contributed to the WikiMap, 730 people took our survey, and many others wrote comments by hand on the paper maps that we brought to 20 events. Together, over 2,000 comments were made! This participation will enable us to develop a useful and effective plan.

At this point we are compiling comments and working on a draft Bike Plan that will provide recommendations for improving biking in Cambridge.

The next phase will enable people to comment on the draft Bike Plan; there will be online options for providing input as well as a public Open House. We will provide updates over the next months and look forward to learning more from you!
