The bikeway system encourages bicycling as an alternative mode of transportation. The existing and proposed routes of bike paths are broken down into five classifications:
- Class I Bikeway Bike paths or trails have a completely separated right of way for the exclusive use of bicycles.
- Class II Bikeway Marked Bike lanes typically in the paved roadways that provide a restricted right-of-way for the exclusive or semi-exclusive use of bicycles with restricted vehicle parking and vehicle/pedestrian cross flows.
- Class III Bikeway Bike routes use shared right-of-way with pedestrians and/or vehicles.
- Multi-Purpose Paths or trails available for joint bicycle, pedestrian, and equestrian use that may or may not be separated or paved.
More information about the City's bike routes can be found in the General Plan at Chapter 2.4.3.
