The Town Staff took to the streets in Chapel Hill to get new perspective on just how easy or not-so-easy the streets are to navigate as a cyclist. Staff noticed bike lanes could be added, lines re-painted, and some bike lanes being used as loading zones. Staff also tested bicycles and noted differences in riding regular bicycles and electric bicycles including navigation, quick take off, weight and ease of loading a bike on bus with each type of bicycle.
Steps will now be considered for scheduling re-striping of faded lines, location of possible new bicycle lanes, need for bollards to protect bike lanes from being used in loading zones and other observations for improvements.
