Ride the City - Miami, FL

Today is the soft launch of Ride the City - Miami. Ride the City is a bicycle route planner that helps cyclists map a safe bike route from point A to point B. Like other bicycle maps and routing tools, Ride the City finds the shortest distance between two points. Volunteers and Open Street Map users are still adding bike routes and improving the map. Give Ride the City a try and let them know how it's working for you.

Here's how:
First, Ride the City avoids roads that aren't meant for bicycling, like highways and busy streets. Second, Ride the City steers bikes to routes that maximize bike lanes, bike paths, greenways, and other bicycle friendly streets while avoiding steep hills.

Miami is the 44th city to get the safe bike routing tool since its inception in 2008 (first starting in New York City.)

App available for iOS and Android.
