Urban Bikeway Design Guide and Advocacy Resources Announced at Summit

At the National Bike Summit yesterday, folks announced a couple of resources. You should check them out and add them to your reference library and arsenal!

With New York City's transportation head Janette Sadik-Khan, the National Association of City Transportation Officials announced their Urban Bikeway Design Guide. It's intended to help fill in where existing national standards, principally AASHTO standards and the MUTCD, lag behind or have an insufficient urban - indeed, urbane - emphasis.

Advocacy Advance is a collaboration between the Alliance for Biking and Walking and the League of American Bicyclists. It offers research reports and monetary assistance in direct grants, scholarships and technical assistance to advocates for walking and biking.

You can always find links to them and to other resources at the Breakfast Blog Reference Library.
