Touchstone Tours: New Method

In addition to the 4 methods that served as the base for the Bicycle User Experience concept, this blog will be translating more human centered design methods to the context of street design for everyday biking. These blog posts are initial explorations.


The thirteenth new method we'll explore is Touchstone Tours.



What: Tour of a street or intersection led by an everyday user.

Why: Learn about how users interact with and use the street. Build better relationships with community members and advocacy groups.

End Goal: Make holistic street design decisions based on multiple perspectives and build a more symbiotic relationship between the users and planners of a street.


(This method was translated to the context of street design for everyday biking from two traditional design methods: Touchstone Tours and Personal Inventories)

What are your thoughts? How do you think this method could be used in practice, and by whom (planners, advocacy groups, elected officials)?
