The right ride
... oh my!
This interactive website is the brainchild of Chris Braiotta, a Somerville, MA website developer. It aims to collect intelligence from other riders about the best, worst, and most hazardous locations across Greater Boston. Users can add their own hot spots using a wiki-style feature, which Braiotta plans to inaugurate this week.
Powered by Google Maps, the site features an interactive map of locations considered dangerous by local riders. The initial list of hazards was provided by Ian Thistle, a bike enthusiast of Braiotta's acquaintance. While Braiotta exercises control over the data to prevent online vandals from adding bad information, most vetting and evaluation is done by other users.
