A Colorado Springs bike map, developed the city of Colorado Springs, is on sale now and details which roads are the most bicycle-friendly.

The comprehensive bike map shows roads with bike lanes and/or paved shoulders and also color-codes roads without any bike lanes or paved shoulders by volume of motor vehicle traffic.

The map was developed by the city with money from the a federal Transportation Enhancements grant and the city’s Bicycle Excise Tax, which is collected on the sale of all new bicycles within the city limits.

The map details off-street multi-use trails and any street grade above 6 percent is noted. The map also designates roundabout locations, transit transfer stations, park and ride lots, bike shop locations, police and fire stations, and major destinations, such as schools, colleges and shopping centers. It also includes information on bicycle safety, rules, and resources and how to transport your bike on Mountain Metropolitan Transit.
