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.

Bike Share hits SF

Another city joins the bike share revolution! This time its San Francisco. Here's the place to sign up: Bay Area Bike Share. It's day one and Ride the City's got the bike stations live on the map (see image below), so feel free to check out Ride the City - San Francisco (operating in all of the Bay Area) and compare it to the other bike routing tools available for your neighborhood.

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.

NYC Bike Share

Posted in

The bike share system in New York City is finally on the ground and running. This is the first weekend that the bikes are becoming available so go out and give them a try.

Note that the Ride the City map includes the layer of bike share stations to help you know which stations are empty or full. Here's a screenshot of the map with the bike share station markers (green "s" teardrops). When you touch a bike share marker, you can see how many bikes are at that station as well as how many empty docks to be sure there's room to return a bike before you get there.

Ride the City - Philadelphia & Pittsburgh!

Posted in

It's been a while since we've added new cities to Ride the City but we are happy today to make a soft launch of Ride the City Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, two up and coming bicycling cities. We're calling this a soft launch because volunteers and Open Street Map users are still adding bike routes and improving the map. Give Ride the City a try and let us know how it's working for you.

Ride the City - Calgary

Calgary

At about 1.1 million people, Calgary, Alberta, is Canada’s third-largest city and fifth-largest metropolitan area. As a young, largely suburban, sprawling metropolis it is less known for cycling, and more as a North American capital of the oil and gas industry, the Calgary Stampede rodeo, and for the winter Olympics hosted here in 1988. Despite reputation and expectations, however, cycling is increasingly popular in Calgary. A network of walking and cycling paths, at 700 km (434 mi) the most extensive in North America, provides not only opportunities for recreational cycling but also convenient, safe, and often scenic commute routes.
