What is BIKESAFE?

The Bicycle Countermeasure Selection System (BIKESAFE) is intended to provide practitioners with the latest information available for improving the safety and mobility of those who bicycle. The information on the site falls into two categories, Resources and Tools, explained below. Learn more about BIKESAFE's contents and purpose, or go directly to any of the links above.

Resources

The resources are informational pages providing an overview of bicycling in today’s transportation system, information about bicycle crash factors and analysis, and selecting and implementing bicycling improvements. Learn more about the resources sections or choose any link from the navigation bar above to get started.

Tools

The tools allow the user to select appropriate countermeasures or treatments to address specific bicycling objectives or crash problems. Start with one of these tools if you're already familiar with the issues involved in bicycle safety and mobility and want to start learning how you can make improvements in your own community.
