55. Bicycle Transportation Network

All principal arterial (including freeways and major arteries) and minor arterial (major collector roads) roadways should be required to have ‘Class I’ dedicated bicycle lanes physically separated from the regular traffic lanes. Minor collector roads should be required to have designated bike lanes. There should be a complete network of integrated bicycle roadways in all urban and suburban area.

All bicycle paths should be twice as wide so that it allowed for two marked lanes of travel in each directions.  Especially with increasing use, it is becoming ever more dangerous for faster travelers to pass slower travelers by going into lanes dedicated for opposing traffic.
