The American Canyon Bicycle Plan was developed as a component of the Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency’s Countywide Bicycle Plan Update. The Plan is intended to guide and influence the development of bikeways, bicycle policies, bicycle programs and bicycle facility design standards to make bicycling throughout American Canyon and Napa County more safe, comfortable, convenient and enjoyable for all bicyclists. The overarching goal of the Bicycle Plan is to increase the number of persons who bicycle throughout American Canyon and Napa County for transportation to work, school, utilitarian purposes, and recreation.
 
This plan has been developed to address the needs of all types of bicyclists, including novice riders and children, the average bicyclist, and advanced riders and commuters, as well as shoppers, recreational riders, and tourists. Important reasons for increasing bicycle travel include reducing congestion and greenhouse gas emissions due to automobile traffic as well as general public health benefits of active transportation. This plan is designed to address the most common reasons why people do NOT use bicycles, including lack of convenience and perceived safety concerns. Important reasons for increasing bicycle travel include reducing congestion and greenhouse gas.
