dc.description.abstract This creative project redesigns Zhongguancun Avenue in Beijing as an example to explore strategies to develop user-friendly bicycle networks in China. Bicycles were once the primary mode of transport in urban areas in China. As cities have expanded and motor vehicles developed over time, this mode has been challenged by the diminished cycling space, deteriorated cycling environment, and outdated facilities. Cyclists risk safety when sharing and competing for space with motor vehicles. Setting the goal for designing a better urban cycling environment under this context, the project explores developing a safe and efficient transport environment for Zhongguancun Avenue in Beijing for bicycle commuting while providing a comfortable environment for recreational use for cyclists and pedestrians. This project reviews existing literatures to identify solutions for establishing and improving bicycle networks, including bicycle path and bicycle lane design, conflict resolution, bicycle parking and storage design, and green bicycle network development. en_US
