Based on a survey of practical options to suit local conditions, the book is intended to help local authorities to provide better facilities for cyclists in towns. In recognition of the role that the bicycle might play in transport policy, UK local authorities have been requested to submit plans for cycling facilities in their 1978-79 transport policies and programmes. The following chapters discuss the subject: (1) background; (2) bicycle usage; (3) bicycle safety; (4) bicycle law; (5) the state of bicycle planning abroad; (6) current provisions for cycling in the UK; and, (7) designing bicycle facilities. /TRRL/
