Trails & Bikeways
National Bike Month - May
The month of May is National Bike Month and the City of Dublin hosts many free events to celebrate.
Bicyclists, pedestrians, joggers and other bicycle and pedestrian facility users received good news in October 2014 when the City updated the Bikeways Master Plan and adopted the City’s first Pedestrian Plan. The first Bikeways Master Plan was adopted in 2007. The newly adopted Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan combines an update to the Dublin Bikeways Master Plan and the City’s first Pedestrian Plan into a comprehensive document that provides policies, network plans, prioritized project lists, support programs and best practice design guidelines for bicycling and walking in Dublin.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan
Policies in the plan include the continued development of successful bicycle and pedestrian trail corridors, improved bicycle access to parks and open space areas, improved bicycle lanes and/or routes on several key cross-city corridors, bikeways on key freeway crossings, the development of education and enforcement programs and improvements to the City’s Bicycle Parking Ordinance.
Several noteworthy updates have been made to the Dublin Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, including:
- Updated bicycle network classifications featuring buffered streets and green pavement
- Grant ready concept drawings and fact sheets for three bicycle and pedestrian priority projects
- Existing walking conditions and proposed pedestrian improvements with a baseline inventory and recommended projects within Downtown Dublin
Bicycling in Dublin
