Bicycle Facilities Design "On Bike" Training
The Maine Chapter of the Boston Society of Landscape Architects (MSLA) is organizing an on-bike training session lead by Jim Tasse, PhD. Jim is a League of American Bicyclists Cycling Instructor (LCI, #1308) and the Education Director of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine (BCM). Through his work with BCM, he has expanded and professionalized the bicycle education program run in partnership with MaineDOT. This training session will be geared toward landscape architects and engineers who design public transportation facilities.

The first MSLA bike-training session will be held in the Portland Area.  Depending on participation and interest, future training Sessions would be held in other popular Maine bicycling locations such as Bath-Brunswick, Lewiston-Auburn, Belfast, Bangor and Caribou.

Each three-hour session (1pm-4pm) includes:
Introduction and goal setting activity.
Review of AASHTO, NACTO, PACTS design guidelines and strategies for accommodation, including MaineDOT Complete Streets and LCP policies.
Bicycles and helmets with basic road safety instruction.
On-Bike, 4-5 mile bicycle conditions assessment ride with short learning stops.
Follow-up discussion on facilities design, roadway comfort and perceived safety.

Evaluate roadway and shoulder conditions for safe and comfortable bicycle operation.
Identify roadway and pavement hazards to bicycle operation.
Explain why people on bicycles sometimes need to use more of a travel lane for safety.
