Testing begins . . . now! We need your feedback, and your support!

Objective: an online, interactive Albany bike map with bicycle-friendly routes.
Primary considerations: safety and comfort. We especially want to encourage novice riders, visitors, and new residents, by showing that you can cycle throughout Albany on mainly bike-friendly streets. The map concentrates on secondary roads, side streets, and bike-pedestrian paths. Major arteries are used only where necessary to make connections. Traffic density is indicated by color coding. Traffic advisories, where needed, are indicated by “caution” triangles.

We have made many revisions the past few months, based on your input. We incorporated valuable advice from many people, and have made significant changes to many of the routes.

Let the testing begin. Your comments, suggestions, and questions will help make this the best possible resource for cyclists in the City of Albany.

Crowd Funding
Assemblymember Patricia Fahy arranged a grant for the development of the map up to this point. What remains is the cost of adding a key feature to display customized low-stress routes to your destination. We have received additional donations from several individuals, and from the Honest Weight Food Coop’s “tokens for bags” program. Our remaining need, as of Oct. 18, is now $850. Just $10 from fewer than 100 people will meet the goal. We can avoid the cost of a commercial crowd funding service, and you can be a local hero. Please mail your contribution directly to:
