The purpose of this paper is to constitute the design and construction of bicycle routes as a pure art or science. That is, to enhance its use as a function in the development of the art and practice of bicycling. To differentiate clearly from the generally accepted concept of bikeways, a new term, called "veloroutes", is defined. Veloroutes, meaning swift roads, can be defined as those bicycle routes which are especially designed to incorporate all the knowledge of the principles of the art and science of bicycling. If the objective of bicyclism is to go further, faster with less energy, then the objective of veloroute design would be a facility design in which the energy to cover a given distance by bicycle would be an established minimum. /TRRL/
