Use this new map to plan your bike commute

Posted By on Thu, Jul 31, 2014 at 10:09 AM

The Spokane Regional Transportation Council has released a new bike map of the region, showing roads with bike lanes, roads where bikes are prohibited and suggested routes as well as landmarks like trailheads, bike shops and ParkNRide lots. While we can hope for a time when more roads are at least "shared roadways," this will give you a sense of where things are now so you can plan the safest ride possible.

If you want to complain about certain areas that are unsafe for bikes (or other modes of transportation), check out the city's maps for just that purpose. The bike-specific one is here.

Here's a glance at the map. Red routes have bike lanes, blue are shared roadways and green are sign-posted shared roadways. Click here to see a larger version and the full key.
