Adding Some Safety

To be able to track where the unsafe roads, scary dogs, glass strewn shoulders and roads under construction is priceless. This is exactly the latest feature at Have issues daily on your commute. Let us know and become safer in the numbers.

LOUISVILLE, KY (BRAIN), Louisville’s online community for cyclists, has launched Safe Rides. Safe Rides is a program that allows cyclists to log unsafe incidents or conditions they encounter on our local roads into a database enabling all members of the Web site to easily access this information and pinpoint possible “trouble spots” in their city.

The online tool is a combination of Google Maps, Street View and a BikeClicks database that delivers a user-friendly visual presentation to ensure that your next ride is a safer one. Users can report incidents, accidents and fatalities which show up on a map of the city providing a visual indication of potential danger zones along with a detailed description of the incident.

The program came about as a response to the fact that many cyclists are hit by cars, chased by dogs and yelled at or “buzzed” by angry drivers each day.
