Two-Way Cycle Track

Description
Two-way cycle tracks (also known as protected bike lanes, separated bikeways, and on-street bike paths) are physically separated cycle tracks that allow bicycle movement in both directions on one side of the road.
Two-way cycle tracks share some of the same design characteristics as one-way tracks, but may require additional considerations at driveway and side-street crossings.


A two-way cycle track may be configured as a protected cycle track at street level with a parking lane or other barrier between the cycle track and the motor vehicle travel lane and/or as a raised cycle track to provide vertical separation from the adjacent motor vehicle lane.

Two-Way Cycle Track Benefits
• Dedicates and protects space for bicyclists by improving perceived comfort and safety. Eliminates risk and fear of collisions with overtaking vehicles.
• Reduces risk of ‘dooring’ compared to a bike lane, and eliminates the risk of a doored bicyclist being run over by a motor vehicle.
• On one-way streets, reduces out of direction travel by providing contra-flow movement.
• Low implementation cost when making use of existing pavement and drainage and using parking lane or other barrier for protection from traffic.
• More attractive to a wide range of bicyclists at all levels and ages.

Typical Applications
• On streets with few conflicts such as driveways or cross-streets on one side of the street.
• On streets where there is not enough room for a one-way cycle track
on both sides of the street.
• On one-way streets where contra-flow bicycle travel is desired.
• On streets where more destinations are on one side thereby reducing the need to cross the street.
• On streets with extra right-of-way on one side.
• To connect with another bicycle facility, such as a second cycle track on one side of the street.
• Along streets on which bike lanes would cause many bicyclists to feel stress because of factors such as multiple lanes, high traffic volumes, high speed traffic, high incidence of double parking, and high parking turnover.
• On streets for which conflicts at intersections can be effectively mitigated using parking lane setbacks, bicycle markings through the intersection, and other signalized intersection treatments.
• Along streets with high bicycle volumes.
• Along streets with high motor vehicle volumes and/or speeds.
• Special consideration should be given at transit stops to manage bicycle and pedestrian interactions.

2nd Sunday Lexington

Your Subtitle text

Celebrate the success of 2nd Sunday and the Legacy Trail that is the crown jewel of our trail system. Since 2008, citizens were invited to walk, run, bike, and blade on borrowed, existing infrastructure such as streets and airport runways.  In 2012 Lexington is experiencing permanent infrastructure becoming assets the community now owns.

2nd Sunday’s goal is to increase and improve access to safe places to be physically active in Kentucky.  Beginning in 2008, Family and Consumer Sciences Agents with the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service have coordinated community wide 2nd Sunday events.  2nd Sunday serves as a platform for exploring local health/physical activity opportunities.
