Presentation Description/Abstract

In January 2020, at the last ERAU sustainability conference I presented a poster on the development of a map showing low-stress bicycling routes to and from ERAU in Daytona Beach. The map of the area, from cycling for transportation perspective, is now on its 5th revision. The map includes locations of suggested low-stress routes, shared-use paths, bike lanes, paved shoulders, some sidewalks (and sidewalk gaps) and a few sand or grass paths/connections. Also included are bicycle shops and bicycle parking locations. The low-stress bicycle routes are based on 15 years of bicycling for transportation in the Daytona Beach area. These routes are generally on calm streets and avoid, as much as possible, busy high-speed roads, especially those roads with no bike lanes or shoulders. Taking a Cycling Savvy course is very useful training when you must ride with traffic and "take the lane". Geographical Information System (GIS) data are from Volusia County, the Florida Department of Transportation, bicycleparking.org, Votran and personal GPS data.
