About the Map

The Bike User Map is a resource for bicyclists to use to plan routes according to their comfort level and ability.   It rates the major roadways in Summit and Portage counties as easy, intermediate, difficult or very difficult to estimate how comfortable it is to bike along a roadway.  These ratings include car and truck volumes per day (ADT), posted speed limit, width of the outside lane, Federal Functional Classification and proximity to high vehicle crash locations.  The ratings are explained in more detail below.

About the Ratings

Easy/Beginner

Low traffic or low traffic roadways where interaction between bicyclists and motorist is safer.  Recommended for bicyclists with little or no experience.

Intermediate/Moderate

Increased traffic volume and speeds making roadways more challenging than Easy roadways.  Recommended for bicyclists with moderate experience.

Difficult/Advanced

Roadways with high traffic volumes or speeds.   Recommended for experienced cyclists.

Very Difficult/Expert

Roadways that are heavily traveled with fast moving traffic and other potential challenges such as steep slopes or limited visibility.  Recommended for experienced cyclists only, and alternate routes should be followed if possible.
