Plan your next adventure with the aid of a map

by Ruth Kaser for NE Ohio Tidbits for Cyclers

We have just received a supply Bike User Maps. The free maps are published by AMATS (Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study) and Switching Gears. The Bike User Map is a resource for bicyclists to use to plan routes according to their comfort level and ability. It rates the major roadways in Summit and Portage counties as easy, intermediate, difficult or very difficult to estimate how comfortable it is to bike along a roadway. These ratings include car and truck volumes per day (ADT), posted speed limit, width of the outside lane, Federal Functional Classification and proximity to high vehicle crash locations. The roads are color coded with easy roads as green, intermediate as yellow and difficult/very difficult in bright red.

The map also shows bike trails, trailheads, trailheads with restrooms, CVSR boarding stations, bike shops, hospitals, colleges, highways and streets with bike lanes. In addition, there are inset maps of Barberton, Kent, downtown Akron and downtown Hudson

You can view the map on the Switching Gears website, too
