Follow the instructions below to download and share these worksheets, which are available as individual worksheets or as an nine-worksheet sheet collection. Scroll down to see the pages at full size.

Take Action!

Share your walk audit findings with local leaders, elected officials and members of civic organizations and neighborhood groups. Advocate for changes that will address the most egregious problems and be of benefit to the community. See page 18 of the AARP Bike Audit Tool Kit for information about reporting results and proposing solutions. 

A bike audit can occur in a single-location or along a route between destinations (aka a riding bike audit).

We encourage printing, photocopying and sharing the worksheets so numerous bike auditors — working solo or as part of a team — can observe and document the safety of a community's streets.

This page includes links for downloading individual worksheets as well as for downloading the complete nine-worksheet collection. 

Choose from a one-page worksheet or a two-page large-type version, both of which can be used by printing (and completing by hand) and/or as a fillable PDF that can be completed on an electronic device then printed or shared online.

  • Scroll down to see and flip through the worksheets while online. 

  • Scroll down further to learn how to save, print and/or share a completed, fillable PDF.
