Survey Results: Bike to Work Day 2016

Each year Albuquerque participates in Bike to Work Day (BTWD), which celebrates and encourages bicycle transportation. In 2016, the Mid-Region Council of Governments, in collaboration with others, developed and distributed a survey to BTWD participants to build a better understanding of bicyclists needs, collect general perceptions of about bicycling in the greater Albuquerque area, and identify targeted actions to make Albuquerque more bicycle friendly.

There was an overall perception that Albuquerque is improving bicycle friendliness. Comments underscored the impact of dedicated bikeways and trails. After the 2016 BTWD event, several significant bikeway projects were completed, which will provide an interesting comparison with future survey efforts. The survey results also helped to see concerns such as people’s behavior on roadways and take a deeper look at key elements to improve infrastructure as well as the BTWD event itself.
