City asks residents to take bicycle survey
The city of Davis is asking residents and anyone familiar with biking in Davis to take the League of American Bicyclists survey to help rank the city’s bicycle friendliness.
This survey is meant to provide context for the LAB’s decision-making process, as well as valuable feedback for the city directly from bicyclists in the community. Award results are expected to be announced in December. The survey is open until Nov. 15 at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BFC_Fall20.
Every four years, the city completes the recertification application to be designated as a bicycle-friendly community for which it has earned Platinum status since 2005. In 2013, the LAB added a new higher level of a bicycle friendly community status — Diamond. As of 2020, no community has achieved Diamond level. To learn more about the criteria for each bicycle-friendly level, check out: https://www.bikeleague.org.
The 2020 Bicycle Friendly Community application evaluates communities by five criteria: (1) education; (2) engineering; (3) ridership, crashes, fatalities; (4) evaluation; and (5) encouragement. The application includes both closed and open-ended questions and community input.
“I am proud of the city of Davis’s bicycle friendliness,” said Mayor Gloria Partida. “I encourage community members to complete the LAB survey and show their pride for biking in Davis.”
To show their pride in the Davis bicycling community, the city is asking residents to post messages of gratitude on their windows and doors. Seven messages can be printed on a home computer, which include facts about the Davis bike community and space to share favorite thing about biking in town.
Jennifer Donofrio, the city of Davis bike and pedestrian coordinator, recommends that community members add their own artwork to the messages to show pride and let neighbors know they support the Davis bike community. The messages and survey can be found at https://www.cityofdavis.org/bikes.
