(Please) Map for Bikes!
Calling all bike lovers, road safety advocates, map geeks, planners and anyone who wants to share their experiences, thoughts and ideas about bicycling in RI and support RI Moving Forward’s ‘Bicycle Mobility Plan (BMP)‘.
The Bicycle Mobility Plan (BMP) will take a more detailed look at the specific conditions, needs, and gaps surrounding bicycle infrastructure and operations in the State of Rhode Island and identify strategies and projects that could help close gaps, improve bicycling in the State, and achieve the 20 year vision set out by the Long-Range Transportation Plan.
You can contribute to the crowdsourced map that informs this plan, adding, for example:
- Existing cycling routes
- Bicycling-related incident
- Barriers to cycling
- Improvement needed
- Connection opportunity
