Rural Bicycle Design Guide for Wyoming

The need for improved bicycle facilities in rural communities is becoming more apparent, but the standard national bicycle design guide is aimed at different types of communities than those found in rural areas. Rural communities differ from mid-size and large urban areas in that they typically have severe funding limitations, fewer engineers on staff, serve different populations, and their roadways have a different mix of vehicles. The objective of this report is to utilize current design guides to develop a resource focused on rural communities to aid in making design decisions about transportation facilities that address livability and provide for non-motorized modes.
