Cycling made simple with Ride the City Louisville and an app to match! Find the safest routes from point A to B in the city of Louisville. Much like MapQuest, Google Maps, or Bing... Ride the City Louisville finds the shortest distance between two points.
Ride the City (RTC) is fast, full of great data points to find the best route, and continuously seeks feedback from actual riders to make the routes even better. If you're always on the go like myself, you may find yourself without a spare tube or maybe you just want to get a quick checkup for your brakes; guess what - RTC also provides you detailed information on bike shops along your route. It provides the address, phone number, hours and website information with a click of the mouse. Want to know where to park your bike? Add the layer on the map! Want to print your map and understand what's shared and what's a bike lane? Just choose print and badda boom! Want the directions sent to your phone? Ohhh, yeah, RTC's got that - just click send route to phone! Read more about RTC at their FAQ page.
Want to Ride the City on the go? Check out their mobile app. According to Ride the City, here are some key features: maximize bike routes, works in multiple cities, find nearest bike shops and much more.
The app is available from the iTunes App Store for $2.99 (less than the cost of a tall mocha latte). For users who would prefer to not pay for the app, they can access a version of Ride the City formatted for Mobile Safari at www.ridethecity.com.
In conclusion, don't miss out on this awesome service. Be safe, cycle smart, and Ride the City in style using RTC Louisville.
