Average Rating

4 14
In the past 10 years the United States has experienced an 80% increase in the use of bicycles as a mode of transportation. While in contrast, there has only been a 5% increase in the use of motor vehicles. For this reason, more and more cities are developing main bicycle thoroughfare facilities, such as cycle tracks, as key elements of their transportation network. Cycle tracks can be considered as bicycle arterials or bicycle highways; this interactive online course will outline the planning and design elements needed to develop cycle tracks that support this main thoroughfare purpose. Engineers, Architects, Contractors and other professionals from the A/E industry will learn design guidelines for elements that form part of cycle tracks and that support their implementation, such as ADA accommodations, vehicular traffic level considerations, and the design of geometric elements to accommodate on-street parking, transit facilities and left-turn movements from the cycle track.
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
 
  • Identify at least two key elements in the design of cycle tracks that improve the health, safety and welfare of the public.
  • Name two features in cycle track design that accommodate ADA and PROWAG requirements.
  • List two cycle tracks strategies to accommodate adjacent on-street parking.
  • State geometrical configurations to assist cycle track users in turning left at intersections.
  • Given a set of design criteria select the most adequate treatment for accommodating bus bays or transit stops adjacent to cycle tracks.

Good, professional teacher and detailed information. Could have more imagery and graphics to help understand the principles.

time consuming. hard to follow at times.
Very difficult to follow the course
By (Engineer) on Sep, 30, 2019
Very difficult to follow the course. The instructor seemed to assume that the audience had similar command of knowledge, terms, etc as he did since he is also cyclist. Audio was not good.

Audio quality was substandard
By (Engineer) on Feb, 22, 2019
Audio quality was substandard. Narrator's pronunciation of certain words, couple with audio quality made some parts difficult to understand. Check point question placement seemed haphazard and not always in the proper location.
Hard to understand moderator

Hard to understand moderator. Conflicting point in what in the presentation.
