“I Crossed Your Path”

Using a Facebook application called “I Crossed Your Path,” cyclists will be able to make connections with each other by exchanging information – online or through a smartphone – about which routes they took that day. With the information it collects, the project might also help urban planners make better decisions on things like where new bike paths should be built.

From MIT, a quantum leap in bike mechanics, Boston.com. HT: San Francisco Bicycle Coalition e-newsletter.

Also from the SFBC: Get lit!

For all cyclists throughout San Francisco, be sure to stop by one of SFBC’s many stations throughout the city on December 2 to get your free blinky light. Details below…

Light Up the Night with FREE Blinky Bike Lights!

Hundreds of free bike lights will be distributed to cyclists traveling along the city’s major bike corridors on Thursday, December 2nd from 6-7pm by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. We are working to increase rider visibility in the dark hours, and lights are a key piece of safety gear! Check out www.sfbike.org/lights for locations and information on how to volunteer. Spread the word to your friends and neighbors who are riding in the dark! Download a poster and put it up at your school, library, or neighborhood coffee shop. Please note: We are targeting cyclists who do not have lights and you must bring your bicycle to receive the free lights.

Play, think…
