Tracking Hazards

by Warren T

The Right Ride has several sites available to help cyclists track safe routes and dangerous spots around various cities in the U.S.. It’s a nice Google Maps mash-up allowing visitors to click on individual pins on the map for more information about the routes and hazards which registered users have added. Registration is free if you’d like to help map out routes in the following cities:

  • Boston
  • Kansas City
  • Hartford, CT
  • Seattle
  • St. Louis
  • Washington, DC
  • Boston has the most information on-line. Looks like they’re also working on New York and are open to adding cities.

    1. Hi. I’m the “they” at therightride and while it may be a little uncouth for me to comment here, my NYC person flaked. So if you’re in NYC and want a mirror for your city, please get in touch with me (the address is on the site) so we can get something going.

      Thanks to this post, we’ve got mirrors in the works for Phoenix and San Francisco. Thanks!

      That’s pretty sweet. I see Chicago has been added now and more routes and hazards are being included. Nice!
