February 27, 12:00 pm-1:00 pm. Webinar: Bicycle Stress Level Mapping.
   REGISTRATION: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3976111487273616129 — Webinar: Bicycle Stress Level Mapping: How Does Your Network Measure Up? Friday, February 27 12 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. EST A fresh way to map bicycle routes: Traditional bike maps and analysis tools don’t always tell the whole story. This practical session will teach you a different way to map routes, a new way to visualize a complete network, and how clients and communities can benefit. Why stress about stress maps? Typical bike maps don’t convey the comfort of routes or how far a bicyclist can ride until encountering a high-stress location. To attract new riders – many of whom are only willing to ride on routes they perceive as comfortable and low stress – we need maps and tools to communicate that information. Bicycle stress level maps represent a highly effective, visual means to encourage cycling for all ages and abilities and to identify high-stress segments where bikeway upgrades are needed. This session will explain the basics of stress level mapping, how to apply it using available data, and how it can contribute to a network analysis. A fresh way to analyze a bike network: A bicycle network analysis provides a complete picture of the true bikability of a community. Using the results of a stress level analysis, a community’s roadway network can be refined to reflect the true network that is comfortable for bicyclists. This network can then be analyzed to provide a comprehensive “score” of how the community’s facilities serve bicyclists. This serves as a useful comparison to the existing network available for travel by car as well as a comparison to the network after bicycle improvements are made. 1.0 AICP CM Credit Pending Instructor: Vig Krishnamurthy, Transportation Planner and Designer at Sam Schwartz Engineering, DPC, in Chicago, Illinois.
