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.
This is the beta launch of Ride the City - Fort Collins. As you may know, Ride the City is based on data from Open Street Map, the publicly-owned map of the world that's populated with information by volunteer contributors. So...if you notice any errors or missing information, you can help us to improve the map. How? You can email us directly at info (at) ridethecity (dot) com or you can become a member of Open Street Map to go into the map yourself to make any changes as you see fit, which may include corrections to street names or street directions, added connections to bike paths from streets, or putting in missing bike lanes. (Of course you can also add parks, rivers, points of interest, and any other non-bicycle data.)
With Ride the City - Fort Collins, bicyclists now have one more tool to find a safe way to get around on a bike, available on iPhone and Android. We believe that with more options, bicycling is better for everyone.
