Just a different, really clean view of the recently released Allegheny County Crash Data, created by WPRDC. This is the 2014 numbers only, but you can click between “All,” “Bicycles,” “Pedestrians,” and the heat map.
The idea is that data nerds can play with the data and see what they find.
Above is a crash map of every bicycle crash in the dataset.
This map is pretty amazing. Strava, an app for bicyclists and runners that tracks your workout, has their global data in the form of a heat map on their site. It’s beautiful to look at, as well as explore where people are riding and running (or not). Go anywhere on earth and find the best cycling routes.
Mapping Pittsburgh’s bike accidents, 2006-2012
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s interactive map showing where all of the reported bicycle crashes took place.
The Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon in partnership with Bike Pittsburgh has created the first ever Bike Spectator Map designed especially for bicyclists to enjoy safe trail and road routes to follow the runners along the course including special “bike cheer zones” along the way. The course route is safe for bikers of all abilities. Signage will be clearly displayed along the course including street chalk for cyclists to follow to ensure that no bicycles cross the race course, as NO BICYCLES ARE PERMITTED ON THE MARATHON COURSE.
The Bike Spectator Map will be distributed at the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo May 3-4 and can be downloaded online. Riders will be able to follow their friends and family to 5 bicycle cheer zones each highlighting a different area of the Pittsburgh Marathon and Half Marathon courses.
Looks like the Northside will see some new bike lanes.
