Conserve By Bicycle

The Conserve By Bicycle study completed by Sprinkle Consulting and funded by the FDOT provides interesting recommendations.

From the Executive Summary:

. . . . . . the purposes of the Conserve by Bicycle Program are to:
• conserve energy by increasing the number of miles ridden on bicycles and
reducing the usage of petroleum-based fuels,
• increase cycling efficiency by improving interconnectivity of roadways, transit,
and bicycle facilities,
• reduce traffic congestion on existing roads,
• increase recreational opportunities in Florida,
• provide healthy transportation and recreation alternatives to reduce obesity and
decrease long-term health costs, and
• create safe ways for children to travel to school by supporting the Safe Paths to
Schools Program.
