Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center Launches Redesigned Bicycling Website
As part of its continued effort to provide information and technical assistance on pedestrian and bicycle safety, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), has launched its redesigned bicycling website at www.bicyclinginfo.org.
New features of the site include the following:
- A centralized library of bicycling-related materials and documents compiled by practitioners and researchers.
- A searchable database of frequently asked questions about bicycle safety. If users do not find their answer, there is a mechanism for them to submit a question to PBIC.
- A searchable database of upcoming events and training opportunities.
- A compilation of downloadable bike maps from around the country.
- A news room with PBIC press releases, resources for the media and recent news articles. Users can also sign up to receive e-mail updates and news from PBIC.
The redesigned site was developed with input from site users and PBIC stakeholders. Bicycling safety experts from across the country helped revise and develop new site content. New and updated content includes more detailed discussion of plans and policies that support bicycling, resources for bicyclists, information on how to find bicycle data and statistics, tools for identifying bicyclist concerns and strategies to assist communities in building bike-friendly communities.
The redesign of the site was funded through $1.6 million in renewal funding the Center received from FHWA. The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center is maintained by the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, with funding from FHWA.
