Bicycle Brake Response Distance means the distance a bicycle travels from initially applying the brakes to the time the bicycle comes to a stop upright.

The Bicycle Brake Response Distance is a function of the Eight Bicycle Variables To Stop.

The below formula on page 41 in the Guide for the development of bicycle facilities presented by the 'American Association of state highway and transportation officials', calculates, for kilometres per hour, the Bicycle Brake Response Distance:

Distance to Stop =        ____V2______

                                           254 (f + or - G)


               30 (f + or - G)
