Sidepath Suitability form

This form rates the suitability of a sidewalk or sidepath as a bicycle facility. The algorithm was developed by the League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB) for the Non-Motorized Transportation Plan of North Aurora, Illinois (pdf, see Appendix B), using concepts from AASHTO's Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities and the Active Transportation Alliance's Tech Sheet #1, "Sidepath Bicycle Facilities".
