Bike Path Design

Horizontal Curve

  • min radius 75 ft for 20 mph design speed

Grades and Slopes

  • min grade 0.5% but this is difficult to construct, recommend 1%
  • max grade 5% but with gravel paths, recommend 3%
  • Min Bike Grades

Cross Slopes

  • super-elevation curves towards the inside radius, 2%
  • typical 1% sloped path with no crown
    • Bike Path Cross Slope

Bike Crossings

  • Bike Crossing MUTCD
