Metro’s excellent Bike There! map is set for its first major update since 2007.
Metro’s project manager and cartographer for the update, Matthew Hampton, checked in with us last week to share more about what’s in store. Hampton created the last two versions of the map and says he and his team have input all the public feedback they’ve received since its last printing in 2007.
In addition to reflecting public feedback, Hampton says the 2010 version will have greater regional coverage (out to riding areas in Hagg Lake and Dodge Park), an “improved array of detailed subarea maps that show parks and local bike paths,” and many other improvements.
The updated map will also show things in the bike network like cycle tracks and buffered bike lanes. It will also list the many new bike shops that have sprung up in the last three years.
In 2007, the Bike There! map celebrated its 25th anniversary. Check out OregonMetro.gov/BikeThere for more information and stay tuned for the release.
