Share Your NYC Cycling Tips on the Times’ New Interactive Bike Route Map

With New Yorkers lining up for Citi Bikes, the New York Times today unveiled a map asking for readers' wisdom on the city's best and worst bike routes. The map went live with advice from names Streetsblog readers might recognize, including our editor Ben Fried, transport economist Charles Komanoff, Brooklyn Spoke's Doug Gordon, writer Tom Vanderbilt, and advocate Hilda Cohen.

The NYT map joins WNYC's Bike Advice project, which solicited audio clips from listeners with tips on bicycling around New York.

With the Times and WNYC leaving the New York Post and Wall Street Journal in the dust, how long before a major New York outlet follows in the steps of the Times of London and launches a full-throated campaign for street safety?
