Head to BikeMaps.org to view your cycling routes

Our latest addition to the page is a link to BikeMaps.org a crowdsource tool for the global mapping of cycling safety.

The focus on the map is, “… to identify areas with cycling safety issues. These results can be used by municipalities to prioritize infrastructure investments, resulting in safer streets for cycling.”

It’s pretty cool as you zoom into your area!

The map shows you detailed locations of bike thefts, accidents, rough or unfavourable cycling conditions and traffic jam hot spots.

Take a look and let us know what you think by commenting below.

Happy riding!

    It’s also worth noting that the Metro Vancouver cycling maps have just been updated for the first time since 2012, and they include many new bike routes that have been added in the past 3-4 years. You can find them at: http://www.translink.ca/en/Getting-Around/Cycling/Cycling-Maps.aspx

    “Are you unsure of the wear the best, safest and longest stretches of cycling paths and lanes?” Interesting auto correct…
