Next to our project there is a city network of bicycle paths (marked lanes on a pavement) leading to many diverse uses and rapid transit stops. The Investor is also planning to provide appropriate bicycle racks and shower facilities. The only problem is that the city bicycle network is 2m wide while the requirement of this credit is a bicycle path at least 2.5m wide. It is not possible to make the paths wider because they were made by the city authorities. Would a Europe Alternative Compliance Path apply here even though the project is not located in a historic district? Would an explanation confiming that the bicycle paths are safe because they are not used by cars be accepted?
