I am looking for some help. I want to create a google map of every single piece of bike infrastructure in Boston and the surrounding area. Every bike lane, every bike box, every cycle track, every off road path, the works. I will be including large bike parking facilities like the bike cages at T-stops, but skipping (for now) individual bike racks.
To do this I need all of your help. I have created a map (see below) that ANYONE can add to. Simply click on the link here, or below the map and add away. Try to label your points/lines/shapes with something useful, and also try not to delete anyone’s information.
I figure if we all add our little parts we will have the whole business mapped up in no time. Then we can use this map to show new bikers where all the bike lanes etc are.
The map is getting a lot of attention! Which means it takes a while to load, to speed up the page I have put it below the fold. I noticed that some lanes are on there multiple times, feel free to prune them off if you accidentally double up.
If you want to see the entire map continue reading.

Please follow the following guide
On-street bike lanes are green lines
Streets with a mix of sharrows and lanes make orange lines
Streets with just sharrows make red lines
Cycle tracks, buffered bike lanes, or off road bike paths are blue lines.
Large bike parking facilities use the little bike icon pin
Add any notes that will be helpful.
The rest is up to you, go nuts!
When its over I will take all the names of people who added info and have a drawing for a prize!
