Take the W&OD Trail Safety Survey

Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, who manage the W&OD Trail, are holding a trail safety workshop in April. To prepare for the workshop they have developed a Trail Safety Strategy Survey. The survey contains 42 questions including why and how often you use the trail, where you ride, and types of conflicts you've seen.

There are also questions regarding what physical and cultural strategies should be used to improve safety. Physical strategies include signage, separation of pedestrians and cyclists, asphalt treatments, intersection treatments, and improving the surrounding bike infrastructure so that the W&OD trail is not the only option for cyclists.

Cultural strategies include safety signage and pamphlets, working with groups and clubs to spread the safety message, targeted enforcement, education about existing laws, safety events, working with leaders of charity rides to encourage appropriate trail behavior from their participants, and others. We encourage all trail users to complete the survey.
