Ride the City

Seems that this site's been up and running in NYC for a little while, now they're spreading the love to us here in Chicago.

Essentially, it serves as the "bike" option that Google Maps doesn't offer alongside "Public Transit" and "Walking" when searching for directions. Hopefully this will help people choose safer routes - I cringe every time I see someone riding down Ashland or Western... there are such great alternates like Damen, if only people knew it had a non-shared bike lane on most of it!

An Alpha for Chicago is available here:
