Cycle Track

Cycle Track - Photo Small

A cycle track is a bicycle lane that has elements of a separated path and an on-street bike lane. It is a striped and signed lane for bicycle traffic with on-street parking to the left of the bike lane with a buffered area between the bike lane and parking. This design provides a space on the roadway for bicyclists who may feel uncomfortable riding in or directly adjacent to a travel lane with motor vehicles. Where cycle tracks are present, it is extremely important for motorists and bicyclists to be cautious at intersections.

A cycle track is currently present on 1st Ave N between N 8th St and Washington Ave.
