As we reported back in January, the Oregon Department of Transportation is currently working on a much-needed update to the Coast Bike Route plan.
“With the changes in bicycle infrastructure standards, and the growth of bike tourism destinations and travel options both nationally and along U.S. 101,” an ODOT spokesperson told us in January, “the time was right to closely examine and identify opportunities to increase safety, accessibility and enjoyment for both local community members and travelers on the Oregon Coast Bike Route.”
As part of that work they have released a survey. If you’ve ridden the route — or if you’ve wanted to but are just too afraid (something I hear from a lot of people) — please take a few minutes and do the survey.
Here’s the intro from the survey splash page:
As the project team begins work on the Oregon Coast Bike Route Study, we are looking for input from people who have ridden the Oregon Coast Bike Route (OCBR) or who are interested in similar cycling experiences but have chosen not to ride the OCBR. If you fall into either of those groups, please complete the survey below. We appreciate your feedback and input.
You’ll notice the survey doesn’t focus much on infrastructure. It asks for details about your ride experience, quality of campsites, how much you spent on the trip, and so on. Don’t despair, planners assure us they are also looking at infrastructure as part of this project too.
Learn more about the work they’re doing on ODOT’s website. And stay tuned for updates.
And here’s that survey link one more time.
