May is Bike Month in New York City!

NYCityMap has a number of resources for you cyclists out there including bicycle parking and bicycle routes.

Bicycle Parking

The bicycle parking layer includes both shelters and racks, they can be differentiated by their color. If you use the identify tool and select a bike shelter, the callout box provides additional information about the location of the shelter. If you use the identify tool and select a cityrack, the callout box provides additional information about the number of racks at that location.

And don’t forget, you can always use the find nearest tool to find the nearest bike parking to your destination.

Bicycle Routes

The bicycle routes layer includes class 1, 2, and 3 routes, connections, and advisories.

Class I routes represent a bridge, park, or separated on-street path.
Class II routes represent an on-street striped route.
Class III routes represent an on-street signed route.
Advisories indicate a situation about which cyclists should be aware, sometimes this is a closing, or an alert that bikes must be walked on the sidewalk, etc.
