13 CHAP1/BMP 7/16/91 CHAPTER ONE - COMPENDIUM A. SUMMARY: The 2010 City/County Bikeway Master Plan was developed to serve the recreational and transportation needs of the public. Use of the bicycle will reduce the amount of vehicle emissions and therefore improve air quality. Because there has been a 42.9 percent increase in population from 1977 to 1990, there is a need for alternative transportation such as the bicycle. A hobby horse with foot pedals was introduced in 1835 which was the forerunner of our modern bicycle. The earliest record of a bicycle (velocipede) in the Sacramento Valley was an article in an August 1880 edition of the Sacramento Bee about the Marysville District Attorney riding in Capitol Park. A cycling club called the Capital City Wheelmen was formed on June 25, Many cycling events occurred during the late 1880's between clubs and cities. Several studies and reports have been produced for Sacramento during the past 30 years which detail bicycling, hiking, and horseback riding facilities. These are detailed in Chapter 2-D. This Bikeway Master Plan includes all of Sacramento County which consists of 997 square miles and 3,887 miles of public roads. The cities of Folsom, Galt, and Isleton are included as conceptual plans only. The goal of the 2010 City/County Bikeway Master Plan is to develop a comprehensive plan which will meet the needs of all bicyclists. Bicycle travel can be enhanced by improved street maintenance and by upgrading existing roads used regularly by bicyclists. On new construction and major reconstruction projects, adequate width should be provided to permit the shared use by motorists and bicyclists. Bikeways are one element of an effort to improve bicycling safety and convenience. Off-street bikeways in exclusive corridors can be effective in providing new recreational opportunities and/or commuter routes. On-street bikeways can serve to enhance safety and convenience of both the motorist and bicyclist. Air quality and traffic congestion continue to be two of the major issues for the Sacramento region The Sher Bill (California Clean Air Act) mandates the Sacramento Region to reduce air pollutant emissions by an average of five percent annually. Most of the air pollution problems we are facing are caused by the use of automobiles.

14 Sacramento City/County is projected to have an additional 450,000 residents within the next 20 years. Rapid population growth will result in additional vehicles on the roads with the peak hour traffic volume doubling. The traditional method of expanding the existing roadway system to accommodate the increased traffic volumes is no longer the best solution, in light of air quality considerations. Steps must be taken to reduce automobile use and thus decrease the total number of auto trips. A solution to reduce the use of the automobile is to encourage alternative modes of transportation such as public transit, vanpooling, carpooling, bicycling, and walking. In an effort to improve air quality and mitigate traffic congestion, the City of Sacramento and County of Sacramento each have adopted two Trip Reduction Ordinances which require developers and employers to formulate trip reduction programs and transportation systems management plans. Bicycling is a component of TSM programs. The Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) has also identified bicycle safety, facilities, and enforcement as important transportation and indirect source control measures within its 1991 Air Quality Attainment Plan. Improved bikeway design does not totally address the bicycle safety problem. There is a need for a strong bicycle safety/education and public awareness program. Much of the safety problem is an attitude problem. In approximately 70% of the bike/auto accidents the bicyclist is riding in violation of the vehicle code, and the major bicyclist infraction is riding the wrong way (facing rather than with traffic). Almost all bicycle/auto accidents are due to the bicyclist or motorist disobeying the law. Education would minimize the unintentional infractions and strict enforcement would limit both intentional and unintentional infractions. The bikeway development process seeks to provide a degree of mobility that is in balance with other values. Social, economic, and environmental effects must be considered fully along with technical issues in the development of transportation projects. Projects must be selected for implementation on the bases of benefits and community goals, plans, and values. These decisions should emphasize different transportation modes working together effectively. Highway design criteria and polices from the Caltrans Design Manual provide a guide to exercise sound judgement in applying standards to the design of projects. Design standards should equal or exceed the minimum given in the Manual. In addition to the standards of the Design Manual, the Caltrans Traffic Manual contains standards relating to signs, delineation, barrier systems, signals, and lighting. Bikeway signs and markings should be standardized to provide universal understanding by bicyclists and motorists alike. Bicycle signs and markings should be properly maintained to command respect from both the motorist and the bicyclist.

15 The Bikeway Task Force requested that a random sample survey be conducted to gather information about the bicycling public. A total of 10,000 survey forms were mailed and 1,039 questionnaire forms were returned. The return rate was 10.4% which is considered very good. This survey obtained three types of information: 1. Bicycle Count and Classification 2. Bicycle Usage 3. Bikeway Planning The first item revealed that 95% of all residents own a bicycle. Fifty-three percent (53%) of the total bicycles are lightweight multispeeds and seventeen percent (17%) are mountain bikes. The second item detailed that 70% of the total residents participate in bicycling. Eighty percent (80%) of total bicycle trips are recreational/exercise with work trips contributing to twelve percent (12%) of total trips. The bikeway planning question found that the most important facility requested was more Class I Bike Paths. The two most important destinations were parks (1st) and schools (2nd). Also, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that 79% of the respondents knew where the designated bikeways were in their community. It was found that secure and convenient bicycle parking is a major factor which would encourage the use of bicycles. Bicycles left unattended are prone to vandalism and theft. Bicycle parking systems have been developed which offer adequate security, especially when the location is well lighted and highly visible. The cost per mile for each type of bikeway was developed as a joint effort between City/County Public Works and Parks and Recreation Departments. A detailed analysis of this process is found in Chapter Thirteen. The factors used are: Class I (Bike Path) $100,000 (with exclusions) Class II (Bike Lane) $ 2,500 (without construction) Class III (Bike Route) $ 500 The composite maintenance cost for Class I (Bike Path) is $6,380 per mile per year, and for Classes II and III is $1,563 per mile per year.

16 The Bikeway Program costs are as follows: On-Street 5-Year Program 10-Year Program City $958,000 $1,880,000 County $3,057,000 $5,854,000 5-Year Program Off-Street 10-Year Program City $1,375,000 $1,773,000 County $237,000 $554,000 An aggressive bicycle/transit program can enhance the movement of people throughout the metropolitan area. Bikes-on-bus and bikes-on-fixed-rail cars have met with great success in many areas. Being lightweight and compact, bicycles can be carried aboard buses or rail cars. By combining the best features of both modes, bike-on-rail/bus can provide a high quality metropolitan and intracity mobility without relying on the automobile. To provide a safe and convenient bikeway system implementation funding will be necessary. Some bikeway funding sources have evaporated, and new sources have been created. The City and County should seek to maximize the use of all funding sources to provide the bikeway plan as herein defined. A Bicycle Advisory Committee is recommended to assist with the implementation of the Master Plan. The 2010 bikeway inventory is detailed in Chapter Sixteen of Volume I and Appendices I and J of Volume II. Total mileage as proposed in this Master Plan is as follows: On-Street Off-Street City County TOTAL 1, During the five-year program the Master Plan outlines the mileages as follows:

17 On-Street Off-Street City County TOTAL During the ten-year program the Master Plan outlines the mileage as follows: On-Street Off-Street City County TOTAL

20 CHAP2A 4/25/91 CHAPTER TWO A. INTRODUCTION FOR THE 2010 BIKEWAY MASTER PLAN: The Sacramento City/County Bikeway Master Plan is an effort to coordinate and develop a bikeway system that will benefit the recreational and transportation needs of the public. This plan also recognizes the use of the bicycle as an alternative form of transportation which will reduce the amount of vehicles emissions in this geographic area and contribute to an improvement in air quality. In addition, the provision of bikeways in Sacramento City and County increases the mobility of those people who rely upon bicycles for transportation because they cannot, or choose not, to own and operate a motor vehicle. The revised Bikeway Master Plan also reestablishes the inclusion of bicycles as a consideration in traffic planning and project funding. Previously, the bicycle was viewed largely in terms of recreation. Although the prior plan recognized it as an alternative form of transportation and cited it as a means to improve individual physical fitness, the 1977 plan concentrated on the bicycle for recreation purposes. Since the 1977 Sacramento Bikeway Master Plan was adopted, Sacramento's area population has increased and the needs and attitudes of the residents have changed. While the increase in population benefits the community in terms of cultural resources, commercial prosperity, and tax dollars for social programs and public improvements, the growth in population also brings associated problems. Increasing awareness by the public of environmental problems, such as decreasing air quality and diminishing natural resources, has and continues to subtly shape attitudes towards individual responsibility towards the environment, and conservation. Although the emissions from the combustion engine vehicle are not the sole source of Sacramento's air pollution, auto emissions contribute significantly to the amount of the region's critical pollutants. Furthermore, legislation has been enacted (federal, state, and local) mandating a reduction in the amount of air contaminant emissions. Increasing the use of the bicycle as an alternative form of transportation will reduce the amount of vehicle emissions and contribute to an improvement in air quality. Due to the combined growth of Sacramento City and County, there is a tremendous need for alternative transportation. From 1977 to 1990, Sacramento City and County has grown in population to a total of 1,026,800, a 42.9 percent increase. As the County has grown in its employment base and jobs/housing ratio, the number of vehicle miles traveled (VMT) has also increased for commute and noncommute trips. While reliance upon the automobile has remained strong in the United States

21 for total trips traveled, many Western European nations are using alternative transportation for a significant portion of their total trips. It is interesting to note that Netherlands and Denmark use bicycles for 29.4 percent 20.0 percent, respectively, of their total trips. In comparison, the United States used bicycles for 0.7 percent of total trips (1978 data). Implementation measures of the Sacramento County Draft General Plan Circulation Element encourage the use of transportation alternatives and improving facilities for modes of transportation within employment, public activity, and other development which do not rely on the use of the automobile. The Land Use Element presents strategies for accommodating growth that include land use-transit linkage. This strategy describes a new form of development, Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), that also benefits and promotes bicycle and use and access. This Bikeway Master Plan recognizes the use of the bicycle not only in terms of recreation, but also for its increasing prominence as an alternative transportation source. BICYCLE OWNERSHIP AND USE IN SELECTED COUNTRIES The Worldwatch Institute in Washington, DC recently produced an interesting paper on bicycles entitled "The Bicycle: Vehicle for a Small Planet". Selected statistics are shown below the Worldwatch Institute is an independent, nonprofit research organization created to analyze and to focus attention on global problems.

26 CHAP2B/BMP 5/16/91 B. BICYCLE HISTORY: The bicycle has evolved to its present form and popularity over an uneven, and sometimes unlikely course. First considered an expensive plaything of the elite in Europe, then an odd transportation vehicle viewed with skepticism if not hostility, virtually ignored for nearly seventy years following the invention of the automobile, and now rediscovered as a transportation alternative an healthy, recreational outlet accessible to and affordable for nearly everyone. The relationship of bike and car is an old and interesting one. Many of the people whom we associate with the development of the automobile--henry Ford, Glen Olds, and George N. Pierce--were bicycle mechanics before they manufactured the cars bearing their names. Their transition from bikes to cars was, of course, momentous for the history of transportation as well as their personal careers. When these men turned their attention to motor vehicles, the bicycle--which appeared headed to replace the horse as the primary vehicle of personal transportation--was relegated to the background and finally even to the realm of a child's toy. 2 The following table provides highlights of the bicycle's bumpy ride along its evolutionary trail.

30 CHAP2-C/BMP 1/24/91 C. SACRAMENTO COUNTY BICYCLE NOSTALGIA: Since most urban dwellers prior to 1890 depended on streetcars and railroads for transportation, their trips and excursions were confined to those areas served by public transportation, and by operating schedules. It is no wonder, then, that the advent of the bicycle was received as a symbol of freedom. Working men bought bicycles to ride to work, while other acquired them for social, recreational, or health purposes. As one historian has noted: "no sport...attracted so many participants as bicycling;...it was recommended by physicians, and it helped to bring about more rational fashions for women." An early form of the bicycle, the velocipede, had been invented in Europe between 1855 and Popularly called "the boneshaker," it consisted of a high wooden wheel with iron tires in front, with a small wheel in the rear. The diameter of the front wheel was constantly enlarged to permit greater speed. The velocipede had been brought into the valley by 1878, when the Marysville District Attorney and an ex-constable raced along "D" Street for a one thousand dollar bet. The Sacramento Bee also noted in August 1880 that: A young man attracted considerable attention in Capitol Park last evening by his skillful management of a Columbia bicycle, such as is used by members of the eastern clubs. The high wheeled concern moved along noiselessly and smoothly and, when its rider so desired, with remarkable speed. It would seem that the bicycle might well answer the same purpose of a saddle horse, with this advantage - it costs nothing to feed it. The bicycle had become so popular in the eastern United States by 1880 that the League of American Wheelmen was organized in that year, with memberships confined to cycling clubs in various cities. Sacramento joined this organization on June 25, 1886, when the Capitol City Wheelmen were organized. The new cycling club had relatively few members and received only limited publicity in local newspapers until Most of its activities seemed to involve racing, which meant that only the select few joined the organization. The annual relay races between the Capitol City Wheelmen of Sacramento and the Oak Leaf Wheelmen of Stockton began on April 24, 1892, and, with the exception of 1895, were held every year until The first race consisted of a five-man relay team for each side, riding fifty-two miles and delivering that day's newspaper
