The Love to Ride Blog

Creating a more bike friendly world

If you’re a transportation professional who wants:

  • data to help improve road safety and the local rider experience;
  • data to help prioritize your funding and make data-driven decisions;
  • data to help make the case for a project or funding;
  • data to help measure the impact of your work on improving road safety,

…then we have a new tool that you can utilize. 

Our new ‘Rate my Routes’ tool enables people in your community to easily and quickly give feedback on how safe and comfortable they feel on each part of the routes they ride their bikes on. 

This way, you can leverage the power of your local community to help you in your work.


It’s easy for people to give feedback by rating their routes

They simply paint their routes with their finger.

As you can see in the video, we then automatically map this aggregated community feedback.

Here are some initial data views after about 40 days of this feature being released (June 11th, 2024).
