DENVER - For the first time ever, you can get a free map of Denver's bike routes.
The 2010 Denver Bike Map shows cyclists the best way to get around the city, with updated information on bike lanes, shared routes and multi-use trails.
"We really have thought about how the map is going to be used by folks, whether they're looking at it before a bike ride or they're taking it actively, tucking it into their bike shorts or tucking it into their backpack," said Karen Good, a planner with Denver Public Works. "It's made out of water resistant materials, so if you get rained on, if you sweat on that map, it will still be around, it will be around for the next ride."
Good says the map also helps riders use the RTD system in their commute.
Denver Public Works, in cooperation with Denver Parks and Recreation, Denver GIS and Denver Community Planning and Development, have produced a new Denver Bike Map that is available for free at all Denver Rec Centers, Denver City Council Offices, Bike Denver and participating local bike shops.
The bike map used to be sold for $5.
