Cycling is an affordable, environmentally friendly transport mode that is a proven alternative to motorized travel. Cali, a state capital in Colombia, has a significant cycling share with over 11% of all trips made by this mode. However, minimal information exists about current conditions for cycling across the city, limiting effective planning and maintenance of infrastructure. To address this lack of information, this research developed a bikeability index for Cali using GIS as the main tool.
