The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center (WPRDC) released all of Allegheny County’s Crash Data going back to 2004.

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.

Strava Global Heat Map

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.

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.
