Who Will Use the Trail?

 

The LINC Trail System must be planned for walkers, runners, skaters, and of course cyclists. A well planned system will provide a safe, enjoyable experience for all users. 

When planning for bicyclists, the PATH/KAIZEN team is aware that only 9% of the population feel comfortable riding in traffic, whereas more than sixty percent of the population will consider riding on a well-planned, well-built trail (Four Types of Cyclists, Roger Geller, Bicycle Coordinator, Portland Office of Transportation). The LINC Trail System has been planned to accommodate the 60% who are street shy and maybe even a few road riders as well.
