Interactive Bike Map Launched Online

There's a new kind of bike map out these days. Seattle's Cascade Bicycle Club has
launched an online mapping tool that gives the public, including in Kootenai County, a place to report bicycle collisions, hazards and thefts, and look at trends.

Since the map went online a couple weeks ago, more than 125 people have registered and reported 30 collisions in Seattle alone. People have posted where road hazards
exist for cyclists in cities in Washington and six other states, although there hasn't been any information input for North Idaho yet that I could see.

So be the first in our area to register. Here's the link. Get going and let us know the challenges you face when bicycling.- SL
