How do you choose the routes?

Here are the main considerations when we’re choosing a route for the Bike Streets Map:

  • Does the map currently have coverage in that neighborhood?

  • Where are the quiet side streets in that neighborhood?

  • What tips have we gotten from folks who live in that neighborhood about where they already like to ride bikes?

  • What are the characteristics of these streets on satellite and Street View photos?

  • What’s it like when we actually get on our bike and ride these streets?

  • Would we ride on these streets with folks who aren’t confident on their bikes?

  • What do Neighborhood Captains and folks in those neighborhoods think about the streets we’ve selected?

Have suggestions on a route or on ways we can do a better job choosing routes? Send us an email:
