The bike maps are here! The bike maps are here!

Thanks to the Bicycle Coalition, we have a stack of the 2012 Philadelphia Bicycle Maps published by the MOTU (Mayor’s Office of Transportation & Utilities).

You’ll find the new map chockful of tips – Rules of the Road, Safety Tips, a section on In Case of Theft or Accident, Tips on Bike Parking, and using Bikes on Transit.

We particularly like the suggestion to contact your local bike shop with photo & serial number if your bike is stolen – having successfully reunited bikes & owners in the past.

The inset for the Wissahickon – Manayunk Bike Trail is great for those that haven’t yet figured out how to get from Forbidden Drive to Kelly Drive.

About the only feature missing is the Transit Map, which was on the flip side of the 2009 Bike & Transit Map, that we’re constantly reviewing with customers to suggest a Bike + Transit mix.

So, stop by and pick up your free copy… the bike maps are here!
