Bike News Roundup: Advertising on a Bike Polo court

“Floating Parking” & Bike Buffer Zone in Separated Bike Lanes from Streetfilms on Vimeo.

I’m going to need to do more of these news roundups at this rate. Or maybe more single posts highlighting the best of the best. But here you go, another long roundup full of good stuff.

    “MapQuest releases bike directions as part of their open maps integration. They suck pretty bad compared to Google’s bike directions (but I guess you could help make them better if you’re into open map stuff)”

    I was going to leave a snarky comment about how what people should *really* be doing is contributing to OpenCycleMap, as that data is under a Creative Commons license and available to the public.. but according to the press release, MapQuest is already using OpenCycleMap/OpenStreetMap! Hooray!

      That’s interesting, because it doesn’t seem to use all the OpenCycleMap routes. For example, OCM has the Lake Washington Loop routing through Montlake, but the MapQuest cycling directions say to use 23rd/Montlake Blvd (terrible advice).

      I’ve never played around with OCM … I might have to nerd out on this for a couple hours now. Thanks.

        I asked a friend who works on Open*Map stuff, “so.. mapquest uses openstreetmap/opencyclemap for its maps (at least its transit/cycle maps) now? is this a new thing?”, and he responded with:

        “At least some of them; they started doing it about 3-6 months ago? They’re also funding development of OpenAerialMap, and hosting some open aerial mapping tiles (based on NAIP, in the US). MapQuest is making a pretty serious open mapping effort.”
