Need a route to rdie your bike around Harlem or the any of the boroughs? Go to www.ridethecity.com get the route from where you want to start, to where you want to finish. Here’s the “About Ride The City” statement from the site:
“Welcome to Ride the City, a website that helps you find the safest bike route between any two points in New York City.
The concept is pretty simple. Just like MapQuest, Google, Microsoft, and other mapping programs, Ride the City finds the shortest distance between two points. But there are two major differences. First, RTC excludes roads that aren’t meant for biking, like the BQE and the Queens Midtown tunnel. Second, RTC tries to locate routes that maximize the use of bike lanes and greenways.
Remember that Ride the City is in its beta testing phase. Send us your route suggestions and it will make the site even better.”
