Ride the City - Fort Collins, CO

Posted in

As bike month rolls to a close in Fort Collins, Colorado, we're happy to launch Ride the City - FoCoCo. Fort Collins is currently one of only four cities to have received the Platinum rating as a Bicycle Friendly Community, from the League of American Bicyclists. (Here's the full list.) According to the data, the percentage of arterial streets in Fort Collins with dedicated bicycle facilities is 76-99%, and nearly 7% of commuters travel by bicycle. Nice.

Ride the City - Amsterdam

Amsterdam Bike Traffic

Bicycling in the Netherlands has been popular and supported by good design for generations. It's a place that every bicyclist should visit at some point, if only to see how incredibly streets can support bicycling.

We're happy to participate in our own little way by launching Ride the City - Amsterdam.

Ride the City - Denver

Posted in

This week we add another city to our growing list of now 45 cities worldwide that provide bike routing. Today we kick off Ride the City - Denver. Just in time for snow, gosh darnit.

Ride the City - Denver maintains the icons on the map to help you find nearby bike resources. Bike shops are the blue icons and bike share stations are the tiny green ones, so you can toggle whichever layer you prefer to see or you can turn them both off.

Ride the City - Asheville, NC

Posted in

Today we launch Ride the City - Asheville, the 43rd city to get the safe bike routing tool since we began this project in 2008 (first starting in New York City.) Asheville is a lot smaller and has fewer bike facilities than most of our other cities but the climate is great for bicycling, and last year Asheville was recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists (they got a bronze-level designation) so they're doing something right.

Bike Shop The Musical

Posted in

Bike Shop, the musical is unique and one of a kind, and it's back! Here's the info:

Written by a cyclist and bike shop owner, Bike Shop is the story of a Brooklyn bicycle store and its owner, Bobby. Two years after a tragic bike accident, Bobby tries to get back on the bike to get her life in gear. The sole performer brings to life three generations of a colorful, bike-obsessed family as she builds and repairs real bicycles on stage...while backed up by a 4-piece Bicycle Band.
