Bicyclists in New Haven have new directions to help them navigate the streets.
The Elm City Cycle Map will be unveiled on Friday morning at a “Bike to Work” breakfast at New Haven City Hall.
The map was put together by Yale graduate Brian Tang, local bike shops and the New Haven Department of Transportation, Traffic and Parking.
On one side, it shows bike routes through downtown New Haven. The other side shows routes in New Haven County, including the New Haven Century routes.
Bicyclists said this updated map is important because there have been many changes to the city’s bike lanes since a map was put together in 2004.
“This map will give people the ability to navigate the city and know exactly where bike lanes are, bike routes are, not only inside the city, but outside the city,” said Matthew Feiner, owner of The Devil’s Gear Bike Shop in New Haven.
Maps can be picked up at The Devil’s Gear Bike Shop, Amity Bike and College Street Cycles.
