Why it matters

In some cases, there are bike lanes available, however it can be difficult to confirm the source of truth to ensure they are reliable (no construction, lane is still upkept, etc). This is especially important as motorists are not always aware of (and sometimes not respectful of) bicyclists.

What does "good" look like?

Integrated mapping of bike lanes would allow cyclists to choose their route, knowing that they have all the relevant information readily available to them.

How could technology solve this?

An app with integrations to smart watches would help cyclists access this information quickly while on their bikes. Maybe use arc gis tools and integrate with/leverage Google map.
