The bicycle is a vehicle used extensively in Brazil and comes as a transport option to mitigate the impacts caused by the indiscriminate use of individual motorized transport. However, despite the use of bicycles in Brazil has a century of history, the lack of an effective cycling policy translates the main factor limiting the insertion of the bicycle as a mode of transport. The cycle planning must act comprehensively where all variables such as geometry, materials and execution should be considered jointly. Thus, this study aimed to conduct an analysis of the performance and the cycle system service conditions implanted in Goiania in conjunction the preferred range stretch of public transport, named Corredor Universitário. The study has also brought a survey of pathological problems and occurrence of nonconformities, associated with the project design stages, material specifications and implementation. Supported by requirements established for cycle planning and by technical standards, design aspects and used technologies were evaluated, such as materials and implementation process, in order to diagnose the system's deficiencies. To assess cycle pavement, in the absence of a specific methodology, we used an adapted method for evaluation and conceptualization of road pavements, by means of the calculation of Pavement Condition Index (PCI). Several flaws were identified in the implanted cycle system. Among the main ones are: the inadequacy of the signage of cycle paths, drainage problems, lighting of bike lanes way compromised by the lack of maintenance, damaged street furniture, lack of bike parking and severe paving problems. Several factors such as the absence of a paving design and the lack of a technological control of concrete influenced the pavement performance of cycle paths, which, with only 3 years of service, have exhibited numerous pathologies. Thus, the analyzed sections were characterized Good the Bad as concepts presented by the adopted method. Therefore, problems diagnosed in the cycle system of Corredor Universitário are due to a variety of factors, ranging from the stage of design planning and conception, as well as the deficiency or absence of the executive design and the low quality control of all execution process.
