Bikeability Assessment

MassBike’s bikeability assessment provides a simple and effective way for local bicyclists to advocate for better bicycling conditions in their community.

How It Works

  • WE provide a one-hour training and all the necessary materials to do the assessment.
  • WE assemble the report based on the data you provide us.
  • YOU choose the geographic scope of what you want assessed.
  • YOU help us spread the word among other advocates to come help gather data for the assessment.
  • TOGETHER we advocate for the report recommendations to become a reality.

If you are interested in getting an assessment for your area, please contact us at!
