CDOT bicycle, byways map gets upgrade
The Colorado Department of Transportation is upgrading its Statewide Bicycle and Scenic Byways map, giving local governments an opportunity to provide cycling information specific to their area.
Initially, bicyclists could go online and review and select state routes to ride throughout Colorado based on shoulder width and traffic volumes. It also included a search capability for lodging, bike shops, restaurants and other areas of interest. Now, local jurisdictions can add similar cycling information to the site. Local agencies can access the site and request to be a "trail editor." Trail editors must be associated with a government agency to be approved.
Map access is available at http://dtdapps.coloradodot.info/bike.
