Understanding what environments are comfortable (and perceived as safe) for bicyclists is essential for increasing bicycling, particularly for non-experienced riders. In this webinar, Dr. Dillon Fitch uses results from a video survey to discuss the limitations of on-road bicycling infrastructure, and the range of effects person- and road-level attributes have on bicycling comfort. He also uses the survey data to identify minimum on-road infrastructure needed to support comfortable bicycling.
