Using the funds from an Advocacy Advance grant, the Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling (FABB) have produced the “Guide for reviewing Public Road Design and Bicycling Accommodations for Virginia Bicycling Advocates.” The guide helps advocates review transportation plans and projects to ensure that bicycling facilities are included. It provides suggestions on ways to influence the process. And it’s just an all around good looking document.
One cool feature: the guide outlines different types of treatments and includes a simple checklist to determine if bicycling friendly guidelines have been followed.
The guide was designed for Virginia advocates but many of the ideas can be used by advocates across the country. Check it out here.
