The Detroit Greenways Coalition has led efforts to update the bike lanes and trails on Google Maps. Not only does this provide an up-to-date map, it also makes Google’s bike and walk directions work better. When creating those directions, Google will try to route cyclists and pedestrians onto trails or roads with bike lanes. It’s not a perfect science, but it’s getting better.
Each red dot on the below map represents the location of one or more bike racks. Clicking on a red dot brings up more information. Yellow dots are for bike racks that should be installed in 2012 but have not yet been confirmed.
Send additions and corrections to the Detroit Greenways Coalition.
Note that they are only collecting data for the cities of Detroit, Highland Park, and Hamtramck at this time.
Thanks to Wayne State University, the Southwest Detroit Business Association, Bridging Communities, Corktown Residents Council, Villages CDC and DDOT for providing bike rack information.
