Bike Montco represents a new approach to bicycle planning in the Philadelphia region. It can be used as a tool to make communities safer and more attractive to bicyclists. The plan focuses on physical improvements on strategically selected roadway segments to make it easier for those who bicycle for transportation as well as recreation. While it addresses issues of encouragement, education, and enforcement and acknowledges the critical role of the county’s trails in a comprehensive bicycle network, the plan is primarily driven by the need to expand on-road bicycling amenities. Bike Montco is a county-level plan with a broad multi-municipal perspective. Its planned bicycle improvements, based upon countywide mobility needs, can serve as a framework for additional planning by local municipalities.
