Bicycling provides an alternative to automobile transportation. This checklist allows community members to rate the safety and efficiency of using a bicycle to get around. The authors of this checklist suggest that a user review the questions asked then take a ride in the community - to shops, work, or to a friend's house. Upon returning from the ride, the use should answer the questions listed in the checklist. The checklist documents also includes suggestions for improving the bikability of a community. These suggestions are organized to reflect the categories covered in the checklist and divided into two groups - what can be done to improve conditions immediately and over time. There is also an extensive resources section.
