This message is making its way around the NYC cycling community:

We are excited to introduce Ride the City (, a website that helps you find a safe bike route between any two points in New York City.

Just like MapQuest, Google, Microsoft, and other web mapping applications, Ride the City finds the shortest distance between two points. But there are a couple differences. First, RTC excludes roads that aren't meant for biking, like the BQE and the Queens Midtown tunnel. Second, RTC tries to locate routes that maximize the use of bike lanes and greenways. Use it to figure out the safest way to bike to work, get to Central Park, or to plan your next bike date!

This is a beta release, so there are some things that we're still working on improving (printing, for instance). We've set up a feedback page so you can help us improve our route recommendations by suggesting streets on which you love (or loathe) to ride.

Ride the City is brought to you by Jordan Anderson and Vaidila Kungys, with web design by Josh Steinbauer.

Please pass on to all of your bicycle-riding pals!
