Abstract:

Bicycling, and especially bike commuting, is a way to improve health, save money and resources, and foster a strong community. In order to improve the bikeability of the Middlebury area, it will first be necessary to survey the current road conditions. I will rank the roads in the Middlebury area on their safety for bicycling based on feedback from cyclists in the area and data about road properties. This includes road and shoulder width, speed limit, road condition, and locations of recurring accidents. The final product will be a map showing the bicycling suitability of the roads in the area. Cyclists will be able to identify the best routes, and planners will have an inventory of roads that need the most improvement.
