Best Side Cycling: Playing GeoGuessr-like game, but with photos of cars in Seattle bike lanes

OK, this is amazing. As a GeoGuessr fan, this game is right up my alley. Or perhaps I should say that this game is parked right in my bike lane.

Sanders Lauture created a program last year that allows people to submit photo reports of cars parked in Seattle bike lanes via social media or directly through the Cars In Bike Lanes website. Aside from maintaining a collection of photos of this unfortunately common occurrence, the website also has a great trick up its sleeve: A game.

If you’ve ever played GeoGuessr, then you probably already understand how it works. Seattle Bike Lane Guesser shows you a random photo from the database, and you have to click on a map to show where you think the photo was taken. The closer you are to the actual location, the more points you get. So it turns into a test of your knowledge of Seattle bike lanes. But perhaps more satisfying, it makes something fun out of something that’s very frustrating.

You can see it in action in Hanoch’s video on Best Side Cycling posted above. If you give it a try, play 10 games and post your score in the comments below.

    I got 818.

    Ridiculous fun test of biking and neighborhood knowledge. I got 783.

  3. Al Dimond

    769 (game code 961933851) … got pretty lucky having many identifiable landmarks in view, made one egregious error when I saw Franz trucks in view but couldn’t think of a street next to the Franz bakery with bike lanes so guessed pretty far away.
