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?
